FLW Legos

This has been all over the interwebs (at least the bits I read) so some of you may have already seen it. But just in case anyone is stumped as to what to get me for my birthday (just a month away!), I present the Frank Lloyd Wright LEGO collection: [via Archinect and many other places]

Remember how, in college, I said no FLW gifts? Yeah, turns out that doesn't apply to LEGOs. In fact, these are part of a whole new LEGO Architecture collection. You can buy the John Hancock Center and Sears Tower sets at select stores in Chicago now, and they are gradually rolling it out everywhere. Very cool!

I don't know any architects who don't just love LEGOs, at least none my age. One of the highlights of my college semester living in Denmark was our trip to the LEGO Land in Billund.

Looking at that map, its amazing how much bigger LEGO Land has gotten since I was there. Guess I'll have to go back someday! Or maybe I should just visit the one in California, since its a bit easier to get to from here!

  1. Holy Toledo, an architecture line of Legos. When I was a kid most Legos were square or rectangular. I find the proliferation of themed Lego sets with all kinds of specialized shapes to be a little depressing. The architecture Legos on the other hand. I could see myself buying these.
