National Building Museum ADMIN July 22, 2010
So many great buildings here, thanks to all for contributing. Can anyone find a U. S. Capitol Building on Flickr?

Group Description

Anyone who has been to the National Building Museum in Washington, D.C., when asked to describe the building, will likely think of "bricks." Approximately 15,500,000 were used to construct the Museum's historic home.

Now, begin to think smaller… now smaller… and you can just begin to fathom the challenge that Adam Reed Tucker has taken on. Trained as an architect, Tucker rekindled his childhood interest in LEGO® bricks and began experimenting with LEGO as a medium for his art in 2003. The result of his vision—15 buildings from around the world made entirely from LEGO bricks—is the centerpiece of the Museum's exhibition LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition.

After drawing inspiration from awe-inspiring structures, visitors are encouraged to create buildings to include in a LEGO community. Based on the principles of good urban design, participants will be invited to create a building from one of the four categories—residential, commercial, institutional, and industrial—and then place the LEGO models on a large-scale map of a city. As the day goes on and the Museum welcomes more visitors, the LEGO city will grow and grow.

Now we're asking you to share photos of LEGO cities, buildings, and other creative structures!

For more information on the exhibition, please visit our website or come to the Museum.
