Architects are actually trying to build ‘Minas Tirith’ from ‘Lord of the Rings’

A group of Architects out of Great Britain have started one of the craziest crowdfunding campaigns yet. Their goal is to raise £1.85 billion which is roughly $2.9 billion U.S. dollars. While it is highly unlikely that this goal will be reached in the remaining 48 days of the campaign, we can dream, right? So far, they have only raised about $3,600 bucks, but you never know, there may be some people with some serious cash who really want to see this happen.

Their plan is to create a full-scale replica of Minas Tirith from Lord of the Rings as depicted in the Peter Jackson film adaptations. Not only will this be a place for visitors to come and see, it will be a fully functioning city where people can live and work. The will need about $23.5 million for the land, $294 million for labor, and $218 billion for materials.

The current goal is to build 645 homes within Minas Tirith ranging from 2-Star one bedroom homes ($625,000) to Luxury 4 bedroom penthouses ($2.7 Million). The homes will range in quality from 2-5 stars depending on the buyer’s budget.

If the fundraising goal is met, then construction on the new city will begin by the end of 2016 and finish up around the end of 2023. They are looking at two different locations in Southern England to build this insane new project.
