Lego for architects
Lego launches the Lego Architecture Studio – a new set of building blocks aimed at the architecture and design community. This set comprises of over 1,200 pieces of 76 unique components, from chamfered wedge-shaped blocks to simple bricks, designed to give freedom and creativity to the maker. Available in UK and Europe, this collection shuns the Lego’s typical bold primary colours for a monochromatic scheme of white and transparent.
Building elements have been made as simple as possible and without embellishments to make them flexible for the creation of small or large-scale models. For a professional touch, the kit comes with a 250-page guidebook to which architecture companies led by Sou Fujimoto, Ma Yansong and Moshe Safdie have contributed, reflecting on the construction toy's double use as a design tool.
Looking forward to seeing architecture models in Lego already, aren’t we?
