Children of all ages love LEGO, the star of the show Brick by Brick, at the Museum of Science and Industry) in Chicago until 2017. The exhibition features more than twelve “giant” constructions made out of little bricks by Adam Reed Tucker, the "artist architect" who came up with Lego’s Architecture collection and one of the world’s 14 LEGO® Certified Professionals. The works on exhibit include the Burj Khalifa, the Colosseum, the Golden Gate Bridge, and the International Space Station: not just contemporary and historic projects, but triumphs of the imagination such as Cinderella’s Castle from the Disney film. A series of workshops introduces the public to the work of architects and engineers, as visitors can build their own LEGO structures and test them in wind galleries and on mobile planes simulating an earthquake.
The exhibition also includes futuristic LEGO constructions designed by a number of prominent architectural practices, including SOM of Chicago, Adjaye Associates of London, Kengo Kuma and Associates of Tokyo and others.
