You've seen those amazing LEGO sculptures here and there crafted by
talented LEGO artist but now you too can sculpt works of art..or at
least architecture just like Frank Lloyd Wright! The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation announced today that The LEGO Group is now the exclusive licensed manufacturer of Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® LEGO Architecture sets.

The LEGO Group and Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures, Inc.
officially introduced the LEGO Architecture line in 2008. The line
currently consists of six buildings – now including two of Frank Lloyd
Wright’s most famous and recognizable buildings, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and “Fallingwater.”

With
models developed in collaboration with architects, LEGO Architecture
works to inspire future architects, engineers and designers as well as
architecture fans around the world with the LEGO brick as a medium.
Builders of all ages can now collect and construct their favorite
worldwide architectural sites through these artistic replicas.

Both
exclusive Frank Lloyd Wright LEGO Architecture sets contain booklets
that feature traditional building instructions along with exclusive
archival historical material and photographs of each iconic building.

The LEGO Group will release the first of the LEGO Architecture Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® sets at the opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibit: From Within Outward at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on May 15, 2009.

  1. I’ve never seen this line of Legos before – really cool.

  2. This is so cool. My mom is from Denmark so I have played with Legos all my life. We used to build everything with our Legos, now I cant wait to buy these for my nephews-and for myself!
