Recreation of a National Historic Landmark:
Build an accurate replica. Scale, proportion, and material representation are key in this category.
Reimagination of a National Historic Landmark:
Let your creativity run wild! Entries may be based on or inspired by our local landmarks, or can be completely original concepts for the building types represented by Columbus’ National Historic Landmarks (church, school, business, bank, house).
The Landmark LEGO Challenge is led by Landmark Columbus in partnership with the Bartholomew Consolidated School Foundation, Columbus Area Visitors Center, kidscommons, Columbus Indiana Architectural Archives, Bartholomew County Public Library, and the Indianapolis Museum of Art.
