Lego Architecture sets are about celebrating engineering marvels and landmarks. What better location to celebrate than the soul of New Orleans?
Opened in 1975, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome is still the largest fixed dome structure in the world, with its 680 foot dome that covers 13 acres. Underneath this giant dome, there have been 6 (soon to be 7) Super Bowls, 4 (soon to be 5) Final Fours, 4 BCS Championships, as well as numerous other memorable sporting events.
The Superdome was a refuge for thousands during Hurricane Katrina, and has become a symbol of hope for the city ever since it reopened to host the Saints and Falcons on September 25, 2006.
Let's go, NOLA. Let's get the Superdome the attention it deserves.
