British architects conceived a very ambitious project. They initiated fundraising crowdfunding site Indiegogo for the construction of the white castle "Minas Tirith" from the epic of John Tolkien's "the Lord of the Rings". It is worth noting that they wish to elevate it to full size. To achieve the desired result, they would need about 1.8 billion pounds.
The architects intend to mount these cash in just 60 days. Start of construction is planned to start in 2016 and finish in 2023. The location of the structure is not set, however it is told about the South of England.
"The vast majority of these expenses will cover the cost for the construction of 15 million pounds on earth, 188 million for wages and 1.4 billion pounds for the purchase of the necessary material. The rest of the cash will be invested in municipal services to 2053", - is told in the project description.
As with any crowdfunding campaign, participants are entitled to any of the services made proportionate cash. "Made for бё 25 you can immortalize your name on the monument and charity tour. For 1.7 million pounds you can acquire a lease of 100 years, the magnificent four-bedroom penthouse with the best views of the metropolis," say the authors of the project.
On the day of writing were collected 54 thousand pounds. More than thousand people have made cash. Note that this is less than 1% of the required amount.
In the epic Lord of the rings the fortress was considered the capital of Gondor. It arose in the final part of the trilogy. Hordes of orcs in the amount of several hundred thousand stormed the city, but was defeated.
