15-year-old boy with autism made Titanic with Lego bricks

An exact replica of the Titanic, he created a 15-year-old boy with autism from Iceland using Lego bricks. The model is 8 meters long and can now be admired in a museum in Tennessee.

Brinyas Carl Bergison used the ship’s actual plans to decide how many Lego bricks would be needed to get it built.

So his huge creation took over 700 hours of work, and it took more than 65,000 bricks to assemble it.

Brigison said he needed to travel across Europe to get to the construction site. “It took me over 11 months to make the Titanic and over 120 glue tubes. The whole project helped me a lot because I trained myself. ”

It should be noted that when Lego learned about his young man’s venture he discounted some of the bricks he needed, while the rest of the money was secured by his family and friends.

Grandpa’s help and phone call to the Museum

Using the ship’s original designs and with the help of his grandfather, he was able to determine the size scale.

“I just had to create this amazing ship and there was no doubt in my mind that I could not do it,” said Briginson.

“As the bricks went up in height, its construction became an obsession,” he said, referring to the interviews he has given over the last five years on the project: “In the beginning it was completely impossible to communicate. Now I’m standing in front of the microphones and giving interviews. ”

As for how the building has now become an exhibit at the Titanic Museum, manager Mary Kellogg said she learned for the first time after calling Brigison’s mother: “There is no place to put it. If we do not find a point it will necessarily be destroyed and it is a shame, ”he told me.
