Yivli Minare Mosque

The Yivli Minare Mosque is one of the oldest Islamic buildings in Antalya, Turkey. Around 1225 a Byzantine church was transformed into a mosque. This building was destroyed the next century, and rebuilt in 1373. Today this building no longer functions as a mosque, but is rather a museum.

This microscale creation was part of a huge collaborative display by European LEGO builders. Conceived by Tobias Reichling and Bruno Kurth, five builders constructed a huge (fifteen square meters) LEGO map of Europe and twenty different people contributed forty-four microscale versions of famous European landmarks.
