New York Stock Exchange building . . The New York Stock Exchange commissioned me to build a 3-foot-tall sculpture of their famous building on Wall Street. The completed sculpture contains over 14,500 LEGO pieces and is on display inside the real building. Here's a close up of the 2-brick tall lettering that I often use. (I've been fortunate never to have to build a "K" before, which does not fit well into this style... I designed a new "K" here, which isn't perfect but does the job.) The real building, which is over 100 years old, was built in the "neoclassical" style of architecture, made to resemble old Greek and Roman architecture from thousands of years ago. The fresco atop the columns contains 9 larger-than-life figures, which took me three full days just to build with LEGO bricks! It was fun to replicate the figures' dramatic poses with cartoon-like exaggeration. I used to live just a few blocks away from the NSYE building on Wall Street! It was a pleasure to build a sculpture of this building which is not only such an icon of New York, but also one of my old neighbors. How'd he do that? Here's a sneak-peak at how I created one of the super-detailed sections. This is the top of one of the pillars, which is called a "capital". In this case, likely a capitalist capital. This little 2-inch chunk uses nearly 80 pieces alone!
