The LEGO Company and the New York City Educational Alliance requested Sean display his LEGO city at an event honoring Daniel Libeskind, the architect chosen to re-design the World Trade Center site in lower Manhattan.
About this creation
In early April 2003, a public relations manager at The LEGO Company contacted me about loaning
my work to the New York City Educational Alliance.
They wanted to display my LEGO city at an event honoring Daniel Libeskind, the planner/architect
who will be rebuilding the World Trade Center site in Lower Manhattan.
I enjoy architecture and of urban planning, and as a resident of Lower Manhattan, I said that I'd
be honored to.
I then had to pack up my buildings, trees, cars, pedestrians, roads, and everything.
The event was being held at The Pierre, a very elegant hotel in Midtown Manhattan
about 5 miles north of my Lower Manhattan apartment. New York City streets are not known for their
smooth surfaces, but I was able to drive everything there without any damage.
i love this,that s how you pack? ok! i often wondered how you did! i haven t showcased any creation on a show yet! it will come,i thought you covered your creations completely each time you moved them! what a show! i might sound a little sarcastic here ,but,i have more confidence in your building and architectural talent to do the new complexes,than the actual contractors,if the old towers are any indication of it s solidity! your attention to detail and perfection would secure me a lot more!... good luck!
