“My desire is to capture the essence of a particular architectural landmark into its pure sculptural form. I first and foremost do not view my models as literal replicas, but rather my own artistic interpretations through the use of Lego bricks…” Adam Reed Tucker
The Lego Architecture Series celebrates the past, present and future of architecture through the Lego Brick. The brand includes a series of Lego sets designed by Architectural Artist Adam Reed Tucker, and each contain the pieces and instructions to build a model of a famous architectural building in micro-scale.
Empire State Building
With this golden set, Lego Architecture presents not only a piece of New York history, but a tribute to a building said to represent nothing less than “what we were capable of”. The Empire State Building has been voted one of the 7 wonders of the modern world and stands as a colorful giant in The Big Apple skyline.
John Hancock Center
The 100-story skyscraper located in the commercial district of Chicago, houses commercial functions, offices and apartments. The amazing constant tapering makes the upper residential floors smaller and smaller, thus enabling them to be naturally lit.
Seattle Space Needle
From an artist’s mind shaping sketches on a napkin, to a 605 feet (184m) tall hyper-modern construction weighing 9,550 tons. These are the outer-points in the story of the Seattle Space Needle, an observation tower and a landmark, built for the 1962 World Fair. All great things start out small.
Solomon R. Guggenhein Museum [Frank Lloyd Wright]
Only the greatest of artists keep our attention long after their passing. 2009 celebrates the 50th anniversary of The Guggenheim
The architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, passed away April 9th, 1959, six months short of the October opening…nevertheless, his astounding work has solidly nailed him to the Architects Wall of Fame.
Fallingwater [Frank Lloyd Wright]
Perhaps the most famous residential home in the world. Frank Lloyd Wright´s masterpiece merges man with nature by implementing materials as well as extending lines from the surrounding land.
Open to the public since 1963, Fallingwater attracts thousands of visitors from all over the world every year.
