Contact 1 is the first project in a series that will imaginatively depict the creativity and beauty of intelligent life forms throughout the universe. The futuristic metropolis took a whopping 600 hours to complete, and Doyle is offering detailed instructions on how to assemble the 200,000 piece masterpiece to raise funds to create the rest of the series. LEGO fans can support Doyle’s Kickstarter campaign for perks like downloadable instructions, archival prints of the masterpiece, or even DIY starter kits.

Contact 1 towers over an extra-terrestrial foreground in a land Doyle calls Odan. The fantastical space-age city was inspired by spiritual and meditation centers from ancient cultures, and it features a myriad of turrets that stretch towards the stars.

Doyle wowed us in the past with his masterful skills by building a decaying Victorian home from LEGOs, and now he’s taking his craft into the future with this beautiful Sci-Fi series.
