As part of a permanent installation at APM, a high end shopping mall in Hong Kong, I was commissioned to create sculptural LEGO seating and decor for the mall's new lounge. The lounge was to feature a botanical theme, so I created several benches and stools, a floral mural, an orchid sculpture, and some lighting, all with a floral and botanical theme.
As part of the unveiling, I traveled to Hong Kong and exhibited some of my other work in addition to the permanent pieces. The launch was featured in Hong Kong newspapers, magazines, and on TV.
...The fashion models made me feel very short...
On display was a portion of my Greenwich Village model, the Chrysler Building from my book Cool City, a Steam Train I'd made for a TV show, a Mazda 3 I'd made for Mazda, my giant Xylophone, and a bust of a boy named Burk.
I was fortunate enough to meet with Legend Bricks and the Hong Kong LEGO Users Group (HKLUG) and made lots of great friends while I was in Hong Kong.
A quick hello to my fans in Hong Kong:
The pieces are now permanently installed at APM mall, so if you're ever in town go take a look (and a sit) !
