Towers of Tomorrow with Lego Bricks helps guests discover the design and precision it takes to build these modern marvels by also giving anyone the opportunity of constructing their own building creations from over 200,000 loose Lego bits and pieces to contribute to the growing Lego metropolis.

More than half-a-million little plastic bricks and over 2,400 hours. That's how long it took Ryan McNaught (aka "The Brickman")—the only certified Lego professional builder in the Southern Hemisphere and one of only fourteen in the whole world—and his team to construct the twenty skyscraper replicas on display. The replica towers were built at a scale of 1:200 with an eye for precision and attention to detail.

In addition to viewing the exhibit and playing with the Danish toymaker's trademark bricks, visitors are encouraged to contribute to a crowdsourced mural outside the gallery's entrance. The mural will, over time, reveal a large-scale landscape of some of Vancouver's most iconic landmarks.
