Between 1937 and 1949 J.R.R. Tolkien introduced Planet Earth to Middle Earth in The Lord of the Rings and the Hobbit – a world bursting with magical lands and witchcraft. As a homage, master LEGO builders David Frank and Alice Finch teamed up to recreate Rivendell – the elven outpost in Middle Earth, taking no less than 200,000 LEGO bricks.
“Because the landscape and vegetation are so important to the model, I came up with the idea of having it transition through the seasons,” says Alice about the colors displayed throughout the model. Being a master LEGO builder, Alice had just unveiled a massive Hogwarts model which took nearly twice the number of bricks as her Rivendell collaboration with David.
We’re excited to see what the LEGO building pair comes up with next!
