There's something undeniably charming about seeing architectural gems recreated in Legos. And the most recent A+ Awards -- sponsored by Lego -- took full advantage of the power of this quintessential architecture toy.
Architizer asked some of the world's greatest architects to build scaled-down Lego models of their in-progress designs, and the results are delightful.
SHoP recreated their glassy, sky-walking design for Uber's future Headquarters in San Francisco's Mission Bay. BIG constructed a model of their new stair-stepping terraced tower destined for Hudson Yards.
Raad Studio recreated a mini version of their design for the Lowline, a subterranean park planned for an old underground trolley station.
Jeanne Gang's model featured a series of the studio's towers-in-development. Bernheimer Architecture showed off an angular Lego model of their Quonochontaug Residence, while Taylor and Miller's geometric Lake House was populated with cute improvised human figures.
