Architectural Excellence

In my research today about LEGO skyscrapers, I stumbled across this incredible portfolio by Adam Reed Tucker. A former architect and one of only 11 certified LEGO professionals in the world, he dutifully recreates the world’s most impressive buildings in exacting detail. He’s even done the St. Louis Gateway Arch using only traditional bricks.

Besides building massive creations he also founded and actively designs LEGO’s successful Architecture line. His seemingly unlimited ambition and dedication to such massive buildings even extends to unbuilt skyscrapers like the Chicago Spire and the Miglin-Beitler Skyneedle. Seeing such stunning recreations is awe-inspiring, and I am quite disappointed to have missed his display at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry last year. I can only hope it will return after it leaves the Smithsonian so I can take a firsthand look.
