Lego Architecture Studio // a new set of building blocks. Danish toy company LEGO has launched Lego #Architecture Studio – a new set of building blocks aimed at the architecture and design community. Lego aims to also strengthen the kit’s appeal to architects, engineers and construction industry professionals with an accompanying 250-page guidebook for the 1,200 pieces (of varying unique components blocks to simple bricks), designed to give as much freedom and creativity to the maker as possible.
Architecture companies led by Sou Fujimoto, Ma Yansong and Moshe Safdie are among those that have contributed to the manual, reflecting on the construction toy’s double use as a design tool. Growing up may not be an option.
