LEGO Architecture Fallingwater 21005
Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1934, Fallingwater is perhaps the most famous residential home in the world. Open to the public since 1963, this masterpiece exemplifies Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architectural style by intimately merging Man with the surrounding landscape. This highly-detailed LEGO model, co-developed and designed by architect Adam Reed Tucker, captures all of the distinctive features that make Fallingwater am architectural landmark.
LEGO Architecture Rockefeller Plaza 21007
The Rockefeller Center is a complex of 19 commercial buildings covering 22 acres (89,000 m2) between 48th and 51st streets in New York City. Built by the Rockefeller family, it is located in the center of Midtown Manhattan, spanning the area between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue. Rockefeller Center represents a turning point in the history of architectural sculpture: It is among the last major building projects in the United States to incorporate a program of integrated public art. Sculptor Lee Lawrie contributed the largest number of individual pieces - twelve - including the statue of Atlas facing Fifth Avenue and the conspicuous friezes above the main entrance to the RCA Building.The Center is a combination of two building complexes: the older and original fourteen Art Deco office buildings from the 1930s, and a set of four International-style towers built along the west side of Avenue of the Americas during the 1960s and 1970s.
LEGO Architecture Seattle Space Needle 21003
Built for the 1962 World's Fair, the Seattle Space Needle dominates the Seattle skyline with its characteristic "flying saucer" design. Built to withstand winds of up to 200 mph (321 kph) and earthquakes up to 9.5 magnitude, the Space Needle clearly demonstrates the strength of its unique tripod design. This stunning LEGO model, co-developed and designed by Adam Reed Tucker, captures the original Space Needle's "Race into Space" design.
LEGO Architecture Farnsworth House 21009
Farnsworth House was designed and constructed between 1945 and 1951 as a one-room weekend retreat, located in a once-rural setting, 89 km(55 miles) southwest of Chicago on a 240,000 m2(60-acre) estate adjoining the Fox River, in the city of Plano, Illinois. Mies van der Rohe conceived Farnsworth House as a structure that was both independent of and intertwined with the nature around it. The simple elongated cubic form of the house runs parallel to the flow of the river and is placed in the cooling shadow of a large and majestic black maple tree. The house is elevated 1.60 m (5.3 ft.) above the flood plain by eight steel columns, which are attached to the sides of the floor and ceiling slabs. The end of the slabs extend beyond the column supports, creating cantilevers. The house seems to float weightlessly above the ground it occupies. The interior appears to be one large room filled with freestanding elements. The space flows around two wood blocks called "cores". The fireplace-kitchen core appears almost as a separate house nestling within the larger glass house. The materials used are quietly luxurious - travertine floors, primavera paneling and silk curtains - and the detailing minimal and meticulous.
LEGO Architecture Willis Tower 21000
When completed in 1973, the Willis Tower was the world's tallest building at 110 stories. Located in the heart of downtown Chicago, Illinois, USA, the Willis Tower was the first skyscraper to use the innovative "bundled-tubular" design, which gave it its characteristic step-back appearance. This iconic LEGO model, co-developed and designed by Adam Reed Tucker, captures the essence of the bold age of skyscraper design.
