Lego Collaborates with Romance Was Born, Adriano Zumbo, Dinosaur Designs & More

As part of their Festival of Play, celebrating 50 years of the beloved building brick in Australia.

To celebrate 50 years of Lego in Australia, the beloved building brick is putting on a Festival of Play — and it's exactly as fun as it sounds. As part of the party, Lego's collaborated with ten Australian creative-types, who have made installations which are on display at Macquarie Street in Sydney.

They've worked with a whole lot of awesome people: Romance Was Born designers Anna Plunkett and Luke Sales, paper genius Benja Harney (who coincidentally created the paper backdrop at RWB's show), pastry pro Adriano Zumbo, six-year-old artist Max Treffkorn (who we interviewed a while back), plastic fantastic accessories label Dinosaur Designs, tattoo artist/illustrator Simplesime, photographer Louise Whelan, animator Fiona Dalwood, craft-based designer Kitiya Palaskas, and surface designer Saffron Craig, who possibly has the best first name in the world.

The contributors were given complete creative control, and the designs were made into a reality by a team of 13 certified Lego builders (yes, this is a thing), under the guidance of Australia's own Lego boss, Ryan McNaught. It took a buttload of Lego (300,000 pieces, to be correct) and one month to complete. 

The LEGO Brickworks — Art For All exhibition will run until June 4, and will then move indoors to the Powerhouse Museum from June 15 – July 30, the Newcastle Musuem from August 4 — September 7, and the Ipswich Art Gallery from September 12 — October 10.
