Where it all began…well for a lot of us at least
I know many an architect who start their career at a young age with Legos, lots and lots of Legos. Red ones, blue ones, and only a few shapes and sizes (nothing like they are now). Lego seems to understand this very well. You may have seen the Lego Architecture Series, if not, it is Lego building sets for adults. The models are architectural masterpieces, such as The Farnsworth House and Fallingwater and many classical architectural wonders.
Lego is now helping us all go back to our childhood roots. They have just launched The Lego Architecture Studio.
All the blocks are white or translucent. They come it lots of wonderful shapes and sizes and they are just what I want for my birthday (hint, hint). Here is a great video of their launch at Lego World in Copenhagen.
I wonder if we will start seeing buildings with little knobs on top.
