Exhibition of World’s Longest Span Bridge Built With LEGO® Bricks at ELEMENTS in West Kowloon Successfully Closed
Designed by Dr. Robin Sham, FICE and AECOM’s Global Long Span and Specialty Bridges Director, this bridge was first constructed in the United Kingdom by Certified LEGO® Professionals under the supervision of Dr. Sham – recently appointed CBE* in Queen Elizabeth II’s 2018 New Year’s Honours List for services to the Civil Engineering Profession.
When the bridge was launched in 2016 it was awarded a distinction by Guinness Book of World Records! More than 33 meters (110-feet) long, using over 260,000 LEGO® bricks and weighing more than half a tonne, this engineering marvel was reconstructed for a special exhibition in the Metal Zone at ELEMENTS in West Kowloon, Hong Kong, as part of the Institution of Civil Engineers bicentenary celebrations in 2018.
On 21 March, the Honourable Matthew Cheung Kin-chung, Chief Secretary for Administration of the Government of the Hong Kong S.A.R., was the officiating guest for the ceremony which marked the exhibition’s official opening to the public. We are also delighted that 8 secondary schools in Hong Kong were involved in helping to build this innovative and impressive structure for the enjoyment of visitors.
Thank you for supporting the event during 21 March – 22 April 2018 by paying a visit to this world record-setting LEGO ® bridge with your friends and relatives and especially, the next generation of civil engineers!
