James compiled lego as high as 20 feet at Denbies Wine Estate, the area of Dorking, England assisted by 1,000 volunteers. At that time he thought there would be someone or collectors who are interested to buy the legonya work.
But he had to face permitting the use of Lego as a home building. Due to the massive use of plastics in the UK requires a fairly complicated legal. May have to deal with a big thing, the maker of lego and may otherwise not have permission and the right to use their products for commercial purposes. May was then banned for not using lego.
Finally the artistic value of the building has to be demolished, in addition lego thorny issues, also no one wants to buy the building lego.
