Pop-Up LEGO Buddhist Temple



I've always been a huge fan of LEGOs, but I was the type of kid who followed the exact directions on the box and then never dismantled my structures. I bow to those makers who can create their very own design with LEGOs as their medium.

This replica of the Kinkaku-ji Zen Buddhist temple in Tokyo actually pops up out of its "box", and was made by the very talented talapz.

That's amazing. I've been hyper aware of LEGO recently because we've been working with them on The LEGO Book and LEGO Star Wars: The Visual Dictionary.

It was on "How They Do It" this weekend on the discovery channel though, that I found out that there are 62 LEGO bricks for every person on the planet and that every year the LEGO factory makes 2 more for everyone. Which I think is kinda insane.
