Street Artist Painted A Bridge In Germany To Resemble LEGO Bricks

If you've ever driven through the outskirts of Wuppertal in the Rhine-Westphalia region of western Germany, you may be surprised to discover a bridge made from a colorful set of interlocked, jumbo LEGO bricks. Although the bridge looks like it is made from massive plastic toys, it’s made of concrete, so you can rest assured a giant will not come along and take it apart.


According to My Modern Met, the Schwesterstraße bridge is part of the former Wuppertal railway line which was later repurposed both as a pedestrian and public bicycle path. After years as an unremarkable concrete overpass, the city of Wuppertal commissioned street artist Megx (Martin Heuwold) to revitalize the underside in 2011.


Megx was inspired by his two daughters’ love of LEGO bricks and asked permission from The LEGO Group to make his vision a reality. After getting approval, the artist and his group spent just under two weeks painting the 2,700-square-foot (250-square-meter) bridge in primary color hues. Smart use of shading allowed Megx to create an unbelievably lifelike render, complete with realistic circular connectors.


As reported, the playful Lego-Brücke (Lego Bridge) was awarded the Deutscher Fassadenpreis Advancement Prize in 2012. Scroll down below to see work in progress pictures, and check out more of Megx’s projects on Instagram.
