Brick City: The Backstage Tour! (Warren Elsmore)

By | Published on Tuesday 8 August 2017

A wonderful premise, but underwhelming reality. Lego artist Warren Elsmore and his small team have temporarily installed themselves in the newly refurbished Riddle’s Court, with the aim of completing an entirely imagined brick city by the end of their residency. There are a few larger completed pieces scattered around the building, whilst friendly guides and the team themselves are on standby to answer every question you could dream of asking. For an adult visitor with an appreciation of Lego taken seriously, there’s much to be learnt. What brings it down is there isn’t much to see- yet. The city is currently a patchy glimpse of what the finished product will be, though it will only get better from now onwards.

Riddle’s Court, until 25 Aug.
