Legioblock church: Abondantus Gigantus

Exactly ten years ago, a temporary church of Legioblocks was built for the Grenswerkfestival in Enschede, the Netherlands. The flexibility of the stackable concrete Legoblocks was proven with a special construction that allowed the spire of the church to reach a height of 20 meters.

Construction of large Legoblocks

The Lego church was built with almost 618 Legioblocks as a Brazilian bond. This is a stacking method where space is kept between the bricks. Especially for the project, the blocks were painted in 5 colors to give the church extra dimension and to make the material resemble the world famous toys.
