The Towers of Tomorrow with LEGO Bricks exhibit opened at the Discovery Centre in late September. The creator of the exhibit, Ryan McNaught, and his team have created twenty 14-foot skyscrapers out of lego bricks including New York’s Empire State Building, China’s Shanghai Tower and Toronto’s CN Tower.
