Professor Builds Scale Ohio Stadium Replica out of Legos
I’m not typically a fan of anything having to do with football, but this is pretty cool. It took two years, 1000 hours and over a million Lego bricks, but in the end Ohio State physiology and cell biology professor Paul Janssen managed to create a stunningly accurate 1/100 scale (8-foot by 6-foot) model of his university’s football stadium.
Many of the bricks were acquired online from traders, but Janssen estimates that if he were to buy all of the bricks he used for the stadium brand new, it would have cost him $50-$75,000.
He hopes to display he creation on campus and use it to help raise funds for his research on heart failure and muscular dystrophy. The stadium can be filled with 6000 Lego characters that could represent the individual donors.
