After recreating the Guggenheim Museum for Frank Lloyd Wright’s 150th birthday earlier this summer, LEGO’s exclusive architecture series continues with a 774-piece model of the nearly complete LEGO experience center in Billund, Denmark, by BIG architects aka Bjarke Ingels Group.
The LEGO House is a 197-step kit that essentially mimics the stacked-block formation of the building and its brightly colored terraces, which indicate different zones within the building.
According to BIG founder Bjarke Ingels, the concept of the LEGO House was to create “a cloud of interlocking LEGO bricks… a literal manifestation of the infinite possibilities of the LEGO brick.” The building form is meant to resemble 21 oversized bricks stacked in a pyramidal shape and capped with “the Keystone,” a scaled-up version of the classic eight-knob LEGO brick.
This special kit will launch exclusively at the grand opening of the visitor center on Thursday, September 28, however, 600 lucky fans will have the chance to grab the kit for themselves at a special pre-opening event on Friday, September 22.
