Lego Bridge by German Street Artist MEGX

I love it when a city uses street art to beautify the neighborhood. This 250-square-meter blank overpass in Wuppertal, Germany, was transformed into a LEGO Bridge last year when German companies Akzenta and Klauser Schuhe sponsored German street artist MEGX to give the bridge the illusion of stacked, colorful LEGO blocks. It took MEGX 4 weeks to complete this art installation, with the help of city authorities and local urban planners. A revolutionary way to make your city look like new!

  1. This is so cool! I think I’d feel like a kid again driving under that bridge every day..or like I’d been shrunk and exiled to a city made of Legos.

    • I feel the same way!! What I really love was that this was a sponsored street art installation — Germany is pro street art as a form of urban beautification!
