Do you still remember the words by American architect Philip Johnson that goes something like, “Europe has its cathedrals, and we have Grand Central.”?
For the benefit of those who do not know where is this Grand Central Terminal, it is located in the heart of New York City. Opened in 1913, the Grand Central Terminal has intricate designs both on the inside, as well as the outside. This building is more than a train station. It is in fact, one of the world’s most visited tourist attractions, with 21.9 million visitors in 2013 (according to Wikipedia).
Here’s a LEGO replica of it by KeoArchitect – What attracted our eyeballs to this build is the level of details that were incorporated – in particular, the interior of this building is modelled to capture light through windows and skylights, just like the actual Grand Central Terminal building itself. Also, the exterior of the building features classical Corinthian columns, soaring arched windows, and statue of the Winged Mercury above the main entrance of the station.
