When we were kids, we spent a troubling amount of time surrounded by an up-turned bucket of Lego bricks. There was nothing we couldn't create given enough time, and no model kit was safe from cannibalization. Life is always better with Legos. Just ask the German street artist Megx. He recently set about transforming a droll former railroad bridge in Wuppertal, Germany into a brightly-colored Lego creation. Locals have transformed the old rail line into a pedestrian path (like New York's High Line), and Megx set about painting the underside of the bridge itself to resemble the belly of everyone's favorite childhood toy. We're particularly fond of the iconic green flat roadbed, ourselves.

Megx has an impressive street-art portfolio packed with perspective-oriented pieces, though the Lego bridge is by far the most lighthearted work to date. Head over to the Megx site for a closer look.

      So basically from a structural point of view, the bottom blocks are doing little to nothing because you do not have a good composite beam correct?

        A couple of 2-by-8 plates will fix that.

        Thought of the same thing! Played so much with LEGO, this construction would not be solid enough... haha

        Well yeah, did you expect them to make a real bridge out of real legos? But then again it SAYS THAT IN THE FREAKIN ARTICLE.

      I'm just looking at this again and I had to make another comment: this is so cool. I wish people when they designed buildings or bridges or w/e would add some more flavor to the bland world of concrete. It gives such a unique flavor to what would otherwise be some boring bridge. It's not the lego bridge. Street artists should do more work on things that are bland and boring. Just driving under that bridge would make you stop and feel good. It just adds something to the world that just wouldn't be there otherwise. Again...awesome, love it.

      Droll? Did you mean dull? They have different meanings. You could look it up.
