The humble LEGO brick is a simple yet infinitely versatile art medium that can be used to build intricate structures, tell colourful stories and connect communities. Watch top builders from the local Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOL) commemorate 50 uniquely Singapore memories through their creations at the SG50 edition of The Little Red Brick Show. Maybe, you will be inspired to build a story of your own too at one of their workshops.
