How Many Pieces?

Hi everyone,

These are the photos I wanted to post last week, but deleted them from the camera before downloading.

What is so special about this?  As quoted from a sign next to the replica: "It's a replica of Green Bay Packer's Stadium, designed and built by 15 Engineering Students from Milwaukee School of Engineering.  It was  completed August 5, 2013" and is exhibited in the lobby of Bellin Hospital in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

"It took 1500 hours designing and building the project.  The design is based on pictures and computer projections.   The replica is built on a 1" : 6' scale.  The replica measures 15' x 13" and is 27" tall."
"Over 130,000 pieces were used, equaling to approximately 500 pounds of plastic."  Most of those pieces, if not all, are Legos.

It is pretty awesome to see that in the huge lobby of the hospital and boggles my mind every time I look at it.   ha ha - I always wonder how many times the a chain reaction was started and it toppled.   I think now they have it permanently affixed together so there is no chance of that happening.  Mr. D says it was made out of a whole bunch of Legos!

Just had to share this with you because I find it fascinating.

Thoughts are with all our friends living in the southern states and Eastern seaboard.   The latest winter storm sure is raising havoc down there.   I can't complain about the 1 inch we received today.  It's peanuts compared to what others are receiving.

Take care everyone - stay safe, and I hope your power stays on.



  1. That is an amazing creation! How ambitious! Take care, and stay safe and warm!

  2. I'm so glad that you were able to retrieve your photos! They did an excellent job recreating the stadium, and it's incredible that it's made out of Legos! Happy Valentine's Day to you, and your hubby!


  3. That is simply AMAZING! All my offspring played with Legos (which means the house was booby trapped for bare feet for YEARS). Having seen some of the things they built, I can't even imagine the work that went into this. Just WOW!
    And I am so glad this latest round is missing you. I don't think ANYONE needs anymore snow this year! *grin*

  4. I have yet to make it to Lambeau Field (although I do want to go!). My son always built Lego stuff - I'll have to pick him up on my way north (now that he's moved closer to Milwaukee again) and go see. How much fun!

  5. Awesome creation. Makes me want to see the new animated Lego movie!
    Happy Valentine's Day!

  6. Wonderful! They can make anything in Lego these days from paintings to cars.

  7. Legos have sure entertained a lot of people over the years, haven't they? And what a neat thing to have to "distract" people who may be at the hospital for serious matters, huh? An ambitious project for sure.

    Glad to hear you are escaping the additional snow - is it still bitterly cold back there? It was rainy and cold here today and tonight we have 30-50 mph winds!

    I'm singing for church tomorrow - guess I'd better go practice!! Take care! T.

  8. "Shuffling Along With Parkinson's Disease" has been included in the Sites To See for this week. Be assured that I hope this helps to point many new visitors in your direction.

  9. A fantastic achievement by these talented kids.
