Dutch Abondantus Gigantus "Church" Lego set?
In 2010 the architecture group LOOS.FM in the Netherlands (Holland) built a church using large reusable LEGO-inspired blocks. This church, named Abondantus Gigantus
, was built in the town of Enschede. This church was written up at Inhabitat.com
, and there's even a YouTube video
of its construction.
A few weeks ago on the Architect's blog
, they showed a photo of box of a LEGO brand model
of the church (see below). Unfortunately, the photo doesn't seem to be on the blog page anymore. It shows a number of 7500, but I can't find any existence of that model number. My suspicion is that this is not a real model, but simply a mock-up of a fake LEGO model box. However, I can't confirm that.
Did LEGO actually offer a LEGO model of the church? There are versions built in LEGO blocks, as seen in this picture
and this one
. Has anyone out there (especially in the Netherlands) run into this LEGO brand model? If it really does exist, I wonder if and where it might still be sold.
