Watch your step in the Washington National Cathedral. You won’t want to crush its upcoming exhibit. A Lego model of the National Cathedral will be built starting Friday. The project is set to raise funds for restoration of parts of the cathedral still damaged by the 2011 earthquake.
The Lego replica is set to be made up of 400,000 bricks and be 13 feet long, cathedral staff announced Tuesday. The model will feature all of the details of the real cathedral, including the west rose window, Bethlehem Chapel and the central tower. It will be the world’s largest cathedral to be built from Lego bricks.
Visitors to the cathedral can see how construction of the Lego model is progressing, and help by buying bricks for $2 each to donate to the effort. It wasn't immediately clear when the Lego cathedral would be complete.
