Archives For Architecture Studio

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:
