After the post a couple of days ago about wacky new buildings in China, I remember that the "Bird's Nest" or Olympic Stadium and the swimming venue called the Water Cube constructed for the 2008 Beijing Olympics were realized into the form of LEGO Bricks.

The Hong Kong LEGO Users Group used 300,000 bricks and 4,500 mini-figures in the construction of a LEGO Sports City using the Beijing Olympics as a theme with the Bird's Nest (pictured below) and Water Cube (pictured above) as the centerpieces.
