Tiny Design Nerds: Monochromatic Lego!
It’s been a while since there’s been any truly gripping Lego news. This one is for everyone who went crazy for the Lego Architecture series – the build-it-yourself Lego versions of iconic structures such as Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater.
Launching tomorrow on the U.S. Lego online store is Lego Architecture Studio: 1200 monochromatic Lego pieces in white and translucent bricks.
And if you’re the kind of old-school parent who chafes at modern-day Lego arriving with “instructions” you’ll be delighted to know there is no instruction booklet — just a 250 page glossy book full of sketches, building tips and building “experiments” by notable contemporary architecture firms.
Though recommended for ages 16 and up, I’m pretty sure we all know perfectionist 8 or 9-year-olds who will go crazy for this, right? The new Lego Architecture set comes with a hefty design-nerd price tag of $150 and is available from the U.S. online stores August 1.
