The University of Texas Tower Made Out of LEGOs


Over the years, I have seen some pretty amazing things built out of LEGOs. From dinosaurs to whole cities, the imagination runs wild with these projects. The following construction of the University of Texas Tower is a very noble pursuit and is a fine specimen of perfection.

As any LEGO aficionado will tell you, there is no way to tell how many pieces you will need from the beginning
