Founded in 2013, The Little Red Brick is a Singapore-based LEGO Users Group (LUG) that aims to engage the local building community and creating an environment conducive to sharing of building techniques and creations ( Source : The Little Red Brick)
The group also organise an annual show. This year, they present The Little Red Brick Show: SG50 edition that features familiar Singapore icons of past and present. Being an AFOL (Adult Fan of Lego), when I heard these icons will be recreated using LEGO, I just had to see the creations with my own eyes.

The 50 displays by the local LEGO community is breathtaking.The only downside was that description for each creation was missing. Some of them are pretty obvious references to parts of Singapore while others need a little bit of history knowledge. Given that I practically grew up with Singapore, let me try to interpret each creation from a local eye.
Update (0508) - Signages with description is now up!

Fact : Samsui women played a big part in the construction of the first HDB flat in Singapore. To have a creation to acknowledge their work is perfect for SG50.
