It’s the Olympic stadium, but not like you’ve ever seen it before.
Landmarks from London 2012, including the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, have been recreated in astonishingly accurate detail in LEGO bricks.
Visitors to the exhibition, which is being held on the upper viewing platform of the ArcelorMittal Orbit tower, will be able to meet artist Warren Elsmore.
He will “live build” a 2m tall model of the Orbit itself - using 100,000 tiny bricks.
St Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben and Battersea Power Station also feature in the exhibition, along with everyday icons like the Routemaster bus, black cabs and red telephone boxes.
Bricks in the Sky runs from Sunday to February 22. Tickets cost from £7 for a child, £15 for adults. Visit arcelormittalorbit.com to find out more.
