What do you require?

LEGO builder Pedro Sequeira takes us back to one of the most memorable moments in Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows. Harry’s last return to Hogwarts starts off in one of the most unusual locations on Hogwarts grounds, the Room of Requirement.

It’s the place Lord Voldemort used to hide one of his Horcruxes while applying for the job of Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher. The place where Draco Malfoy spent the majority of his sixth year, fixing the Vanishing Cabinet, in order to smuggle death eaters into the castle to help him assassinate Dumbledore. The place Professor Trelawney attempted to hide her sherry bottles. And last but not least, the place where Dumbledore’s Army could safely meet. At least that’s what they thought.

So of course, a LEGO build of it should capture as much of this history as it can. And indeed, this build is filled with fantastic details. Everything you need is there, from the portrait swinging open to reveal our heroes, to the makeshift beds and hammocks everywhere, to Nigel’s potterwatch radio setup and even the columns with the glass and wood display cases.
