Before we went to Legoland in California, we had a glimpse of some Lego masterpieces at Grand Rapids Public Museum. The exhibit was titled "Dream It, Build It", and it featured famous architectural buildings. These aren't the retail ones you see sold in Lego stores. It was built by Certified Lego Professional Adam Reed Tucker.
I know this is super late and the Dream It, Build It exhibit has already come and gone, but here are some of the photos we took.
Here's Burj Khalifa (located at Dubai, UAE and designed by Skidmore, Owens and Merrill) at the entrance. See? It's sooo tall that I can't even fit the whole building in the frame.
Gateway Arch (St. Louis, MO) designed by Eero Saarinen and Haanskarl Bandel
World Trade Center North Tower (New York, NY) designed by Minory Yamasaki with Emery Roth & Sons | Empire State Building (New York, NY) designed by Shreve, Lamb and Harmon
Marina City (Chicago, IL) designed by Bertrand Goldberg
Look at the gorgeous details.
Fallingwater (Mill Run, PA) designed by Frank Lloyd Wright
Transamerica Pyramid (San Francisco, CA) designed by William Perreira
They also had this area where kids can play with Lego bricks on the table and on the wall.
Another area was dedicated to little (and big) spies. You get a list of items and you have to look for them in this Lego town.
Someone was so tired, she had to sit down on the ledge.
