At one point or another, you’ve wanted to see your favorite place from popular culture in real life. Whether that’s studying in the halls and libraries of Hogwarts Castle or destroying planets and armies in your own Death Star, we’ve all dreamt of being able to witness such impressive sites. These iconic structures spark our imaginations and tie us to our favorite movies and TV shows.
Imagine for a second if we could recreate some of these buildings from fictional worlds. While story writers and movie creators rely on imagination, sets, and cinematography, we would need to use real-world resources and grapple with real-world science and technology to bring our favorite buildings to life. In other words, you could have a bachelor party in your very much Bat Cave, but at what cost?
To answer this question, BigRentz broken down the dimensions and materials of some of the most recognizable structures and found real-life counterparts to estimate the construction costs. They found that if money was no object (and if magic and futuristic technology weren’t at play), many structures could be rebuilt in the real world.
