See Bjarke's Lego Museum Done in (What Else?!) Real Lego

In a bit of wonderfully meta news, Lego's newest, limited-edition set is none other than The LEGO® House, a museum proposed by BIG, Bjarke Ingels' Copenhagen-based firm. Currently only available in Lego's hometown of Billund, Denmark, the stark, all-white block set—which joins the ranks of such architecturally-minded models as Berlin's Brandenburg Gate, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe's Farnsworth House, and Frank Lloyd Wright's Frederick C. Robie House—shares the same blocky structure, amphitheater-style seating, and outer service buildings as the real design, which Bjarke and the gang say will be built by 2016. Until then, watch the Lego version come together, below:
