Crowdfunding is slowly becoming popular these days. It is an effective way for people to realize their dream projects just by asking strangers to give a small donation, just like what these hardcore Lord of the Rings fans are aspiring to do.
The group is raising US$2.82 billion to build the mythical city of Minas Tirith. The project that is being planned by an “ambitious team of architects and structural engineers” is spearheaded by Jonathan Wilson. The team is hoping to build a full-sized replica of the city.
Once the project gets enough funds, construction will start in Northern England in 2016, and they plan to complete it by 2023.
According to the project’s Indiegogo page, “We all share a love of Tolkien’s work, and a desire to challenge the common perception of community and architecture. We believe that, in realising Minas Tirith, we can create not only the most remarkable tourist attraction on the planet but also a wonderfully unique place to live and work.”
