Frank Lloyd Wright + Legos!

Over the weekend, I heard on NPR that Lego has introduced a new line - The Architecture Series. The first available of this series is one of Frank Lloyd Wright's most famous buildings -the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum.
Available through the Guggenheim's online store. This set is a mere $40 or $36 for members. This is a Lego set one could look at for some time to come.


The next in the series will be Fallingwater.
All Things Considered on NPR has an interview with the Architect for Lego, Adam Reed Tucker, who designed these sets.


Fallingwater will be an 800 piece interactive set. The house will be
... 'actually interactive," Tucker says. "It actually comes apart in a puzzlelike formation so you can get into the guts of the building and see the levels, understand his use of cantilever and how the forms play together."
Lego has created a piece where play and learning intersect. With this new line, Lego hopes to inspire a new flock of young designers!
