Respect The Architect: Lego Architecture Series


Ahhh. Lego’s bring back some great memories. Lego’s are probably the world’s best toy.  Now they appeal to my love for design and architecture with their new Lego Architecture Series.  You would think they would of done this a long time ago. I guess better late than never. Lego and architectural artist Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures collaborated on the Lego Architecture Series to create Lego kits for several iconic landmarks and some of  Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous works. You can get the Sears Tower, Empire State Building, Seattle’s Space Needle, John Hancock center and Frank Lloyd’s Wright’s Guggenheim Museum and Falling Water.

As an Architectural Artist my desire is to capture the essence of a particular landmark into its pure sculptural form. I first and foremost do not view my models as literal replicas, but rather my own artistic interpretations that harness the landmarks overall appeal. Beyond its identity as a toy, The LEGO Brick is not initially thought of as a material typically used in creating art or used as an artist’s medium. It is the pure sculptural form that I have translated from reality using The LEGO Brick.— Adam Tucker



The series are not officially available at Lego’s website, but you can order them from Adam’s Brickstructure website.

  1. Just waiting for a similar homage to the structural engineers who make it possible for such conceptions to stand without, you know, collapsing! 😉
