Massive skyscrapers lovingly rebuilt using 15 million Lego blocks

Massive Lego creations are always cool, but none is cooler than this incredible collection of the world's tallest skyscrapers recreated using a grand total of more than 15.5 million Lego blocks.

The exhibition is called Lego Architecture: Towering Ambition, and is currently running at the National Building Museum in Washington DC through September 3. This show has already been open for a while, but they just received three additional massive structures to add to the already impressive collection.

Most of the buildings were put together by one man, Adam Reed Tucker, who also happens to be of only 11 LEGO Certified Professionals on the planet. A trained architect, Tucker decided to mix his profession with his childhood obsession, building massive Lego versions of 11 iconic buildings such as the Burj Khalifa, the Petronas Towers, and the Empire State Building.

I wonder what they're going to do with 15.5 million Lego pieces when the exhibit is over?
