Headlines: What’s Next for Legodelphia?

By ·

Posted by Legodelphia[1] on Tuesday, August 19, 2014[2]

Around a year ago, stories[3] started to trickle[4] out about a man named Levi Buffum, who lovingly recreated the Philadelphia cityscape–Race Street to Spruce Street, river to river–using one amazing medium: white Lego bricks.

The pictures, as you would expect, are amazing[5] and also pretty[6] damn realistic[7]. And so, the legend of Legodelphia was born. According to a recent post on Legodelphia’s Facebook Page, Buffum is seeking opinions about what to do with this glorious representation of the City of Brotherly Love. He writes[8]:

I’m still contemplating what to do with it as it’s currently in storage. What do you all think would be a fitting next home for it? Please Touch Museum? Philly Center for Architecture?

So, we present you with one simple question: what should Buffum do with the massive Legodelphia model? (If the option is divvying it up block-by-block or building-by-building, we totally call dibs on the Art Museum.)
