New, 2 comments

It must be Lego day here—first there was the world's tallest Lego building and now Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's renowned Farnsworth House (a National Trust Historic Site in Plano, Ill.) is the newest addition to Lego's Architecture series. Chicago architect Adam Reed Tucker is the man behind the miniature; he used simple 1x1-inch blocks to recreate the minimalist 1950s structure head to toe, including the built-ins inside, the roof deck, and the furnishings. The kit joins FLW's Fallingwater and the Guggenheim in the series, among others, includes 546 pieces, and retails for $59.99. small price to pay for a DIY slice of midcentury architecture!
