Are you a fan of the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright? Now you can buy two of his most famous works – and build them out of LEGO bricks.
The list is impressive: New York’s Empire State Building, the Seattle Space Needle and Chicago’s John Hancock Center and Sears Tower, for starters. Thanks to the new Architecture collection, you can build some of the world’s most emblematic buildings out of LEGO bricks.
Two works by the incredible U.S. architect Frank Lloyd Wright are also available for purchase online: New York’s Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater, a residence located in rural Pennsylvania, fifty miles southeast of Pittsburg.
The sets were developed as a result of a joint initiative by LEGO and the company Brickstructures, whose owner, architectonic artist Adam Reed Tucker, designs the models.
Each box of bricks comes with information about the real building and its architectural significance as well as a set of detailed assembly instructions.
These fascinating sets aren’t cheap, but they are great toys for armchair architects.
Guggenheim Museum: US$45, plus US$35 for international shipping
Fallingwater: US$100, plus US$40 for international shipping
Other buildings: US$100, plus US$35 for international shipping
