When I was a kid I love my Lego building blocks. I had a ton of them and enjoyed building little cities out of them. Well, until the one night my older brother stayed up all night and built an inter-locking cube out of all of my Lego blocks. It took me weeks to un-do it. What I didn’t realize at the time was it was demonstration of how brilliant his mind was (he went on to earn two degrees from MIT) but to the 10 year that I was, I was just plumb angry.
I haven’t “played” with Lego much in the intervening years. However, I am seriously thinking about jumping back in after seeing this really cool model of Frank Lloyd Wright’s Guggenheim Museum made from Lego.
From ShopWright: “The first release in the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection(R) LEGO(R) Architectural set. Builders of all ages can construct the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (New York, New York, 1956) in a LEGO replica. Set contains 208 LEGO bricks, building instructions and exclusive historic archival material and photographs of the iconic building.”
This and other cool FLW products can be found on ShopWright, the web store of the Frank Lloyd Wright Preservation Trust.
