The world made in Mega Bloks in Montreal
The Museum Grévin Montreal will launch its first temporary exhibit on June 18 that will run until October 4, 2015: The World in Mega Bloks®, designed by Ludovica Miniland. It will be a spectacular exhibit built entirely out of Mega Bloks® bricks. The exhibit will consist of close to 2 million blocks, with over 80,000 of them dedicated to the reproduction of the world’s tallest tower, Dubai’s Burj Khalifa. At a scale of 1:185, the Burj Khalifa replica will stand 4.5 meters tall, instead of 829.
This exhibit will take you on a journey of discovery! Explore a vast imaginary city made up of the world’s most iconic buildings, including the Taj Mahal, Forbidden City, World Trade Center, Kheops pyramid, Eiffel Tower and the Sagrada Familia.
The exhibit’s meticulous builder, Gilles Maheux, is a former architectural designer who left his former career to develop miniature models with his son.
“We are happy to present this spectacular architectural exhibit built just for the Grévin. Construction games are such an important part of childhood, and they are instrumental in developing our creativity. This exhibit is the result of a creative passion that will amaze people of all ages,” stated Gilles Maheux, president of Ludovica Miniland.
