Whenever we’re in contact with LEGO, we’re either stepping on them or creating things that look so little like what we intended that you’d be forgiven thinking they were made by a blind person. We’re challenged that way, but Japanese LEGO fanatic Talapz definitely isn’t. He made a fantastic reproduction of a Todai-ji Buddhist temple, which is pretty impressive on its own. But this one happens to pop-up, like a pop-up book. In other words, the temple is not visible at first, only a colourful box that resembles a suitcase. But when opened up, an intricate folding mechanism reveals the temple in all its glory. It’s pretty jaw dropping, and you can see it all in the video below. If you stick around to the end, he’ll explain how he did it.
