The LEGO Bridge is so well done, some people will be fooled into thinking that special giant building blocks were created to construct the overpass. Granted, the schematics for such an endeavor would have had to go through a lot of red tape. In reality, the LEGO Bridge is all an illusion fostered by brightly colored paint and a love of toys.
Created by artist megx, who's real name is Martin Heuwold, LEGO Bridge resides in Germany. Creatively correcting an urban eyesore, the LEGO Bridge took four weeks to complete. He was assisted by an equally talented team including sponsors Akzenta and Klauser shoes, Wuppertal Movement eV for construction coordination and supervision, Wichernhaus for preparation of the substrate and Evolution Industrial Design for planning.
