Golden Gate Bridge


San Francisco, open your Golden Gate!

Behold my latest submission, the mighty Golden Gate Bridge. Declared one of the seven wonders of the modern world by the American Society of Civil Engineers, the bridge is a testament to human ingenuity and a marvel of aesthetic design, seamlessly blending the natural beauty of the bay with the timeless style of art deco. The bridge first opened in 1937, after four years of construction, and was largely the brainchild of project head Joseph Strauss. He was aided by designers Charles Ellis, Leon Solomon Moisseiff, and Irving Morrow, and by hundreds of workers, including eleven who died during construction. 

The real bridge measures over 740 feet tall and spans a distance of over a mile. This model is not quite that big, and unfortunately is not to scale (to capture the bridge’s six lane width, assigning one stud per lane, a bridge built to scale would have to be over ten feet long). Nevertheless, I’ve endeavored to capture the breadth and majesty of the structure, and the build comes in at a whopping 3 feet 4 inches long, and 13 inches tall. 

I was raised in the Bay Area and have grown up crossing the bridge on my way in and out of the city. It has never failed to inspire some degree of awe and pride, and that same pride drove me to recreate the bridge in Lego. Alas, it is only a digital model, but with your help we can make it a reality!
