LEGO Architecture

The LEGO® Group and Adam Reed Tucker are excited to bring you this new line of distinctive landmark building sets. Our hope is that this will inspire minds of all ages whether you’re young and eager to learn or young at heart and simply intrigued by these modern day marvels. The idea behind LEGO© Architecture is to celebrate the past, present and future of architecture through the LEGO Brick. Through products and events we wish to promote an awareness of the fascinating worlds of Architecture, Engineering and Construction. Initially, we are featuring a pair of Chicago’s most famous landmarks: The Sears Tower and The John Hancock Center. Eventually, we wish to offer other famous landmarks throughout the world celebrating influential architects and movements that have shaped the environment around us. We hope to inspire future architects around the world with the brick as a medium.

Pretty cool. In addition to the LEGO Landmarks (Empire State Building, Seattle Space Needle, John Hancock Center) there is also the LEGO Architect series. The first featured architect is Frank Lloyd Wright. You can see his works of the Guggenheim Museum and the Falling Water house featured above.
