New LEGO Architecture Series By Adam Reed Tucker




The LEGO© Group
and Brickstructures™, Inc. have just unveiled a new product line called LEGO Architecture, an unprecedented collaboration between The LEGO Group and Architectural Artist Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures, Inc.

Initially, in 2008 LEGO Architecture featured a pair of Chicago's most famous landmarks: The Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center. Showcasing America's West and East coasts in 2009 will be Seattle's Space Needle & New York's Empire State Building.

Also, just added is the Frank Lloyd Wright Collection, thus far consisting of two of his most famous buildings; Fallingwater and the Solomon H. Guggenheim Museum.

As an Architectural Artist my desire is to capture the essence of a particular landmark into its pure sculptural form. I first and foremost do not view my models as literal replicas, but rather my own artistic interpretations that harness the landmarks overall appeal. Beyond its identity as a toy, The LEGO Brick is not initially thought of as a material typically used in creating art or used as an artist's medium. It is the pure sculptural form that I have translated from reality using The LEGO Brick.-- Adam Tucker
