Watch a huge Lego building unfold like a pop-up book

Well, here's a difficult-looking trick we rarely see done with Lego: making an elaborate structure of blocks blossom up from a flat board like a pop-up book.

It's the work of Lego architect "Talapz," who has several videos of his projects on his YouTube page, including an earlier, smaller piece that pops up, as well.

The structure in the video below is the Tōdai-ji complex in Nara, Japan. It's evolved from a humble Buddhist temple in the 8th century, and has grown into a sprawling hall.

Watch Talapz unfold Tōdai-Ji in the video below.
