Museum of Arts & Design, auction benefit
As part of a benefit fundraiser, The Museum of Arts & Design asked Sean to build a model of their new building. The model was completed at the benefit and then auctioned off. A second copy of the model was commissioned for display at the new museum.
About this creation
The Museum of Arts & Design is moving to a new building at New York City's newly rejuivinated Columbus Circle. Adjacent to the renown new Time Warner Center, the Museum's new home will reflect the energy of the neighborhood and the museum's collections.

Sean was asked to build a large scale model of the Museum's new building, "Two Columbus Circle".

Arranged with the other auction items at the benefit, the building stood at the entryway, attracting bidders as Sean completed the upper floors.

The building is Illuminated from within, giving the model a high-energy presence. LEGO mini-figures, placed at strategic locations throughout the building, create human sillouettes that appear and dissapear as you walk around and up to the model.

The lighting and infrastructure inside the model of the Two Columbus Circle model was designed to cast an even glow across the building as well as a bright light down to the lobby. Illuminating the lobby allows viewers to easily see in at details from the outside.

The entire model took about 100 hours to design, build, and glue. It uses over 13,000 LEGO elements.
