Lego Architecture

LEGO has just unveiled a new product line called LEGO Architecture with Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures Inc.

The line currently consists of six buildings, now including two of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous and recognizable buildings, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater.

With models developed in collaboration with architects, LEGO Architecture works to inspire future architects, engineers and designers as well as architecture fans around the world with the LEGO brick as a medium. Builders of all ages can now collect and construct their favorite worldwide architectural sites through these artistic replicas.

"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"
