Students turn Middlesex crest into giant LEGO sculpture

Final year students have turned Middlesex University’s crest into a life-size 44,000 piece LEGO sculpture to mark this year’s National Student Survey (NSS).

LEGO crestThe eye-catching sculpture, measuring 1.9metres high, took almost 800 students two weeks to build the Middlesex county coat of arms, with distinctive three seaxes, out of the plastic building blocks. 

The University's theme for this year's NSS was 'complete me', with a number of games-related activities taking place across the Hendon campus based on things to complete.  Students that finished the annual NSS onsite were given a LEGO toy brick, which could be signed and personalised, to be added to the centrepiece. 

The specially-made crest was designed by Duncan Titchmarsh, the UK's only certified LEGO professional, and his team at Bright Bricks, who took just one week to develop the design.  The team have made a series of impressive pieces including the tallest LEGO Christmas tree at St. Pancras International and last year's Covent Garden festive installation featuring Santa and his reindeers. 

The 'complete me' theme was carried across the campus, with Tetris-inspired lounge furniture built by Middlesex alumni, a 'bucket list' wall, and students had the chance to create art sculptures created by renowned geometric artist George Hart.   

Ambika Kucheria, Head of Student Engagement Marketing at Middlesex University, said: "The National Student Survey is a fantastic chance for students to reflect on their time and experience here.  We listen to each and every voice and use the feedback to continue to build on the student experience offered at Middlesex University." 

Commissioned by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and conducted externally by Ipsos MORI, the NSS is organised for final year undergraduates each year to find out about their overall university experience.
