Earlier this afternoon, Brick Factor, the two-day LEGO contest held this weekend at the Boston Public Library, produced the latest LEGOLAND Discovery Center Master Model Builder.

Ian Coffey, a 26-year-old Albany, New York-area resident, had a celebratory bucket of LEGO bricks poured over him, after being crowned the winner of Brick Factor, beating out more than 60 other contestants.

“This is an opportunity of a lifetime to turn a passion into a full-time job,” Coffey said in a statement. “The Brick Factor competition was intense, and the pressure was high, but I couldn’t be more thrilled with the outcome. What could be better than getting paid to build LEGO models all day and teach children how to harness their imagination and creativity?”

“We are thrilled to welcome Ian into the integral role of Master Model Builder,” said David Gilmore, General Manager for LEGOLAND Discovery Center Boston, in a statement. “We were impressed with his creativity, talent and enthusiasm at the Brick Factor competition and look forward to watching him share his skills with our young visitors.”
