Students in MSOE’s Architectural Engineering Institute (AEI) student organization set aside their differences (there were Packers, Bears, Lions and Vikings fans in the group) to build a replica of Lambeau Field out of LEGOs in the Lambeau Field Atrium during the Packers Training Camp. To prepare, the team of architectural engineering, civil engineering, construction management and electrical engineering students took photos of Lambeau Field from various areas and used Google Earth to create a blueprint for the structure, determine its scale and calculate how many LEGOs would be needed.
- 3,000 combined hours of design/construction
- 130,000 LEGOs
- 13’x15’ base
- Scale: 1 inch equals 6 feet
- Working scoreboards and lights
- Interior and exterior architectural details
- Field, complete with players

The Lambeau Field LEGO replica was on display at Lambeau Field through the Packers’ second game of the season. It is currently on display at Bellin Hospital in Green Bay. The project was sponsored by the Green Bay Packers, Pick ‘n Save/Copps, Kemps Dairy and DiGiorno Pizza.
