“Titanic” sank 110 years ago, but its memory will forever be etched in cultures around the world.
Brigadier Karl Birgisson, a 10-year-old boy from Iceland, used 56,000 Lego bricks to build the world’s largest replica of the ship, which he took 11 months to complete.
He is a 19-year-old autistic boy from Reykjavik, Iceland. The Titanic project changed his life. The boy spent 700 hours, or 11 months and 56,000 parts, building the replica.
In 2014, a video of the Titanic’s construction process appeared on YouTube, but it’s only now that this little genius has become popular.
Brignard Carl Biggison managed to build an exact replica of the ship, the boy taking into account all the proportions and dimensions.
The toy Titanic is 8 meters long and 1.5 meters high.
The boy was fascinated by railways from a very young age, until the day his grandfather took him fishing. Then Bullinger fell in love with boats.
By age 10, he knew everything the world knew about the Titanic. The boy visited Legoland in Denmark with his mother, saw the amazing models and wanted to build something himself.
At the age of five, he spent his days playing with Legos and building with the instructions, but more often than not he wanted to build something from his own imagination.
The whole extended family helped and supported each other, especially his grandfather, an engineer, who calculated the number of rooms needed for his grandchildren.
Relatives raised money to help Brignard get all the parts he needed.
His mother helped set up a crowdfunding page where the boy could raise the necessary funds.
Brignard is convinced that working on the Titanic project with his family has helped him to live better with his illness. Brignard is now working on a ferry that takes people to a nearby island. He is in the second year of secondary school. His dream is to become a captain.
