Lego’s newest product, Architecture Studio, isn’t like the Pirate or Castle sets of your youth. Instead, the set features 1,210 white and translucent bricks and, rather than instructions, includes a 277 page guidebook filled with architectural concepts, building techniques, and insights from prominent architecture studios around the world.
Even in the hands of a kid, the possibilities are seemingly endless––but what about an actual architect? To answer this question, Wired sent sets of Architecture Studio to three leading firms––and the results were pretty cool:
- Known for: Barclay’s Center – Brooklyn, NY
- Current project: Domino Sugar Refinery – Brooklyn, NY
- Known for: Oslo Opera House – Oslo, Norway
- Current project: New Golden State Warriors arena – San Francisco, CA
Skidmore, Owings and Merrill
- Known for: Burj Khalifa – Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- Current Project: One World Trade Center – New York, NY
