Canada Builds 150 is a project designed to recognize Canada’s 150th birthday by using LEGO® bricks to highlight the diversity of the Canadian identity as seen through the eyes of LEGO hobbyists and artists from across the country.
Featuring models built out of LEGO bricks from artists across Canada, the initiative seeks to bring Canada to life in a new and exciting medium.
Over the course of 2017, new models will be added to the website every week – models based upon moments in Canadian culture and history, architecture, wildlife, and images of national significance.
