No matter where in the world you are, during the summer you could visit LEGO.com and design a little DOTS mosaic. Diligent builders at LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, then physically created the digital designs and added them to an enormous canvas to create a mosaic even bigger than 31203 World Map.
Designs came in from more than 50 countries including the US, Germany, Australia, Ecuador and Chile.
‘We are hugely overwhelmed by the amount of mosaics that have been created both from our guests at LEGO House as well as everyone who participated online. We have received far more contributions than expected. Each and every one of the contributors is to be thanked for blowing us away with the amount of creativity we have seen in each mosaic,’ says LEGO House Managing Director Jesper Vilstrup.

The massive installation sits above the Red Zone and Yellow Zane, taking up 50 square metres of wall space. It transitions from red and light blue shades into yellow and purple shades.
‘In the wake of a global pandemic, this building event has been a great opportunity to engage with LEGO fans from all over the world. We wish we could welcome a lot more international guests to the Home of the Brick in LEGO House, but when that hasn’t been possible, it’s been a great alternative that we’ve been able to build together – apart. The fact that it has ended with participants from more than 50 countries contributing to the 50 sqm we wanted to decorate is almost creative magic,’ adds Jesper.
Summer attendance at the LEGO destination has been above expectations. The installation will remain in place for the rest of the year.
