Building Toys & Toy Buildings: Brickitecture
January 5 - March 1, 2024
Lincoln Logs, TinkerToys, Erector Sets, LEGO, and the timeless wooden block – the timeline of the toys that we’ve used to build our fantasy buildings, towns, and towers is long and varied. However, one stands out for the love and creativity it inspires within its millions of fans of all ages.
Curated by Blane Ladymon, AIA, this annual exhibition explores micro-scale replicas of famous architectural icons created using toy building bricks. Over 150 sets are on display, including micro-builds, LEGO Architecture series, LEGO Architecture Skylines, and Atom Bricks sets from the curator’s personal collection. Many sets are enhanced with LED lighting, adding vibrancy. The exhibits vary in scale and complexity, ranging from 35-piece models to the impressive 10,055-piece Sagrada Familia. The 2024 exhibition introduces more than 20 new sets, with the crown jewel being Atom Brick’s latest release, the 4,383-piece model of Fallingwater, Frank Lloyd Wright’s most acclaimed work.
While the exhibition is hands-off, guests can visit our LEGO Lab construction zone to create and display their masterpieces. Test your design skills and build anything you can imagine – from dream homes to skyscrapers, treehouses, spaceships, and more! Share your creations on social media with #ADEXlego and leave them in our visitor gallery.
