An awesome exhibition, Lego Architecture: Towering Ambition, is currently on display at The Henry Ford Museum. It features scaled-down Lego versions created by Lego pro Adam Reed Tucker. Among the thirteen structures you will find the Empire State Building, Falling Water, Chicago Spire, Jin Mao Tower, and the St. Louis Arch + Ford Field which Tucker created during the opening days of the exhibition.
Tucker recreates renown architectural masterpieces. Its focus is heavy on the skyscrapers, [hence the "towering" title] but there are some "modest" reproductions included as well. And if you thought these structures to be amazing in real life- you have to check out the miniature versions- totally stellar! By using the unconventional construction materials we view as "toys-" we are able to view these buildings in a different way.
