Grand Budapest Hotel made entirely from LEGO bricks
It is made with bright pink bricks and has manicured lawns.
It took 575 hours and more than 50,000 certified Lego bricks to build a miniature version of the Grand Budapest Hotel that appears in Stefan Zweig’s book and Wes Anderson’s film adaptation, released earlier this year.
Film makers tasked California-based Lego artist Ryan Ziegelbauer to recreate the hotel to celebrate its DVD release, The Telegraph reported. Together with other model makers, he sourced for the bricks from 14 different states in the US as well as private collectors from Lithuania, Latvia, Poland, Germany and Italy.
New York's Lego artist Nathan Sawaya, who is known for making sculptures of the human form entirely from the tiny bricks, also worked on the project.
