Lincoln Log Tower Sets World Record for Height and Pieces

We talk about lots of cool LEGO construction projects around here. One of the more interesting, and large LEGO projects was the gigantic 105 foot tall LEGO tower we covered about a year ago. That tower set a world record for the tallest LEGO construct ever built. Now, a group of architects and architecture students have set a new world record using another childhood building medium – the Lincoln Log.

This particular world record was set for creating the tallest Lincoln Log Tower ever constructed. The Lincoln log structure was modeled after the Nebraska State Capital building and was 12-feet, 4-inches-tall. The structure also used more pieces than any other Lincoln Log structure on record – 10,036 to be exact. The previous record holder stood 10-feet, 11-inches-tall and used only 2,995 Lincoln Logs.

The record-breaking tower was constructed by architectural students from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and DLR Group architects. The entire construction project took the team a little over six hours to complete.

While it’s not nearly as tall as the giant LEGO structure, it’s still quite impressive as Lincoln Logs don’t have the structural locking mechanism that LEGO does, and they also weigh more.
