Not so tiny: This microscale LEGO Hogwarts uses over 75,000 pieces
For those of us who just can’t let go of the Harry Potter universe, this recent work from LEGO builder Mathieu B featured on The Brothers Brick is pure joy.
Turning the model around reveals a quidditch stadium behind the castle. A lot of time and care went into detailing this model. Mathieu spent over 1,200 hours designing and building Hogwarts, and nearly 75,000 pieces were used in its construction.
