Behold the sculptural (architectural?) work of Denmark-based Lene Rønsholt Wille, who recently spent six weeks constructing this immense circular structure entitled “Metaphorical Horizons” in the central hall of the World Trade Center in Amsterdam. On her web site she refers to the entire concept as part two of a graduation project.

Taking the playful use of horizontal lines further, I made a design which lies on the boundary between being an object and being a space. It grows in scale and functions partly as a bench, a desk, a wall and as an entire space. […] Over a period of 6 weeks I built up the design from 270,000 white LEGO bricks in the Central Hall of World Trade Center, Amsterdam.

The project was sponsored by the LEGO Company and you can see a great “brick by brick” photo gallery that details how it was built, showing, admittedly, a number of individuals who helped with the project. Incredibly awesome nonetheless.
