State Library Bricktoria

Welcome to State Library Bricktoria

In 2022, we teamed up with Brickman to create State Library Bricktoria! 

We celebrated with a a series of events celebrating the LEGO® brick, and we got to watch as Brickman's team took on the challenge of building State Library Victoria out of LEGO® bricks. 

On this page, you can learn more about Brickman and watch a time-lapse video of his team recreating the iconic State Library Victoria building.

Be sure to visit State Library Bricktoria on your next trip to the Library. You can view Brickman's impressive build in the Library's Information Centre, just outside the Pauline Gandel Children's Quarter. Open 10am-6pm daily.
