Rebuilding memories of Singapore with LEGO

As part of the SG50 celebration, LEGO Singapore is encouraging fans to rebuild and relive memories to celebrate the Singaporean spirit. LEGO is showcasing the winning entries of the LEGO Rebuild Your Memories competition at Raffles City Shopping Centre Atrium, Level 3.

The highlights at the event is the 8.5 feet tall LEGO Dragon Playground by Singapore’s and Asia’s only LEGO Certified Professional, Nicholas Foo. I was at the event last Saturday to witness Nicholas putting the final touches to the iconic Dragon Playground.

The 8.5 feet tall, 10 feet long LEGO Dragon Playground uses over 22,000 pieces of bricks. Building it took more than 32 hours. Luckily for Nicholas, members of public were there to help out by building parts which will be added to the main structure. The centre of the Dragon Playground is hollow with metal frame support in the middle.
Besides the Dragon Playground, LEGO also showcased the winning entries of the LEGO Rebuild Your Memories competition. Here are some of my favourite.
