Block by block, Iqaluit commemorated in Lego-themed postcard

Kate Dalgleish poses next to her creation — a Lego “postcard” of Iqaluit, complete with the old and new Iqaluit airport, an inuksuk, St. Jude’s Anglican Cathedral and the Nunavut legislature building, against a backdrop of the northern lights. A lawyer by trade, Lego builder by night, Dalgleish and her partner Evan are part of a group of adult builders in Ottawa called ParLUGment who display their Lego designs at fairs and hobby events in Ottawa. Dalgleish was inspired by Lego’s postcards, which are 3D buildable sets sold by the company based on iconic landmarks in major cities. Realizing that Lego did not have a Canadian series, Dalgleish began creating her own postcards, starting with Ottawa, where she lives, her hometown of Calgary, and her next travel destination, Iqaluit. She plans to travel through the city this summer, en route to Pangnirtung for a hiking trip in Auyuittuq National Park. Dalgleish’s postcards will be on display at Ottawa’s Lego Store at the Rideau Centre in August. (Photo courtesy of Kate Dalgleish)
