Lincoln Logs, TinkerToys, Erector Sets, LEGO, and, of course, the humble 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.
This exhibition, guest curated by Blane Ladymon, AIA, explores some of the most famous architectural icons built in micro-scale using the LEGO block. Over 80 sets of micro-builds, make your own creation study models, LEGO Architecture series, LEGO Architecture Skylines, and Atom Bricks sets are on display, all from the curator’s personal collection. Many sets have been finished out with LED lighting to bring the models to life. The sets vary greatly in scale and complexity, from 35-piece models to one of the highlights of the collection, the 9,036-piece Mega Creator Set of the Colosseum.
Through this exhibition, viewers begin to see the connections between play, design, and the work of architects, engineers, and other building professionals. While the exhibition itself is “hands off,” we welcome you to put your creativity to the test in our Construction Zone! We’d love to see your LEGO works – share with #ADEXlego
