The demolition of this bridge in Canada drove thousands of people to see the spectacle of 100-year-old structure collapse as if it were a Tetris block.

Thousands packed the nearby Broadway Bridge to watch the strangely satisfying explosion in the city of Saskatoon on January 10. The 100-year-old Traffic Bridge is to be destroyed to make way for a newer more simply designed bridge.

One man who didn’t enjoy the explosion was Andre Lalonde, who has built a replica of the Saskatoon Traffic Bridge out of lego.
