Building a LEGO Rice University


The collaborative spirit of their work demonstrates the value of community at Rice University. In Andrew’s words, "Community is important, like building is great, but what really made this special was... bringing in so many people to work with." 

The construction took 14 hours to complete, but there may be changes to come in the future! In fact, Andrew has already volunteered his services to update the model as the Rice campus continues to grow. The next time you’re “inside the hedges,” be sure to stop by the Rice Welcome Center to see the display in the lobby.
