LEGO city at Daniel Libeskind black-tie event . 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. . 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. Planning & set up The days preceding the event, I preapared a slightly customized version of my city. The day beforehand, I was told that I would be given a larger area to install my work; so I prepared a larger installation for the event. 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. Installation in the Grand Ballroom took about an hour. The original custom installation Final installation (Trees and cars missing in photo) Packed for transport The ballroom where my city was displayed. The event My LEGO city was installed on the main stage, next to where major New York City figures such as Larry Silverstien, Daniel Tishman, and the Goldmans stood and spoke. After Daniel Libeskind was presented his award, standing next to my city, he gave an amazing presentation about his World Trade Center reconstruction plan. Afterwards, I spoke with him for a moment, and we took a picture together in front of my city. Daniel Libeskind and I, in front of my LEGO city My LEGO city, installed on stage.
