Lego Architecture® instructions now available

12 posts in this topic

Here are the links to the Lego Architecture Series (PDF) Instructions

The builders, designers and architects of today grew up with Legos yesterday. To celebrate this connection, Lego has released their Lego Architecture series, including kits of some of the world’s most famous works of architectural design. Recently, Lego revealed a series of kits dedicated to the works of Frank Lloyd Wright, including his New York Guggenheim Museum and the Falling Water masterwork in Pennsylvania. As Legos have been the building blocks of creativity for many, Lego hopes to exhibit the building blocks of some of Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural greats. [brickstructures via prariemod]

FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT FOUNDATION ANNOUNCES NEW LICENSEE

The LEGO Group and Brickstructures, Inc. to produce and distribute Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® LEGO® Architecture Building Sets

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation announced today that The LEGO Group is now the exclusive licensed manufacturer of Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® LEGO Architecture sets.

The LEGO Group and Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures, Inc. officially introduced the LEGO Architecture line in 2008. The line currently consists of six buildings – now including two of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous and recognizable buildings, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and “Fallingwater.”

With models developed in collaboration with architects, LEGO Architecture works to inspire future architects, engineers and designers as well as architecture fans around the world with the LEGO brick as a medium. Builders of all ages can now collect and construct their favorite worldwide architectural sites through these artistic replicas.

Both exclusive Frank Lloyd Wright LEGO Architecture sets contain booklets that feature traditional building instructions along with exclusive archival historical material and photographs of each iconic building.

The LEGO Group will release the first of the LEGO Architecture Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® sets at the opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright Exhibit: From Within Outward at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum on May 15, 2009.

Doug Volker of the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation:

According to Director of Licensing and Product Development, Doug Volker, “The LEGO product was one that the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation had considered pursuing for several years. It was the vision, passion and creative desire of Adam Reed Tucker to capture the essence of Mr. Wright’s most famous buildings using the medium of the LEGO brick that brought this partnership into being.”

Another exciting aspect of the Architecture Series is the capability to use them for education, team building, or other formats that make the LEGO Architecture series more than just a toy.

“The LEGO Group is known for its creative approach to brick models and now, with its Architecture Series, it will reach even further, to individuals of all ages,” Volker concluded.

Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures and the LEGO Group:

“Mr. Wright’s buildings are a treasure trove of possibilities,” says Adam Reed Tucker, innovator of the Architecture Series for The LEGO Group. “I wanted to create these marvelous buildings for years, so I’m thrilled to be working with the Foundation in order to include Mr. Wright’s timeless buildings in this series, which conceptualizes the very essence of each building in LEGO bricks.”

As is well known to PrairieMod readers, I have a great love of LEGOs, so merging both Wright and LEGO together is a dream come true. So, what do you think of the new sets? What future buildings would you like to see? Leave a comment below and let us know!

Thanks for posting the links to the instructions, grogall!

I've always wanted to find out what the instruction books for LEGO Architecture sets are like (especially Fallingwater), and now I know. :classic:

By the way, those pictures are a bit big...

These instructions are helpful because I'm sure most people have the right bricks to build some of these themselves. Thanks.

Thanks for the links to the instructions, although for some reason I'm getting an error when I try to open the Fallingwater one.

Is that dark green I see? Also, anyone know the price of Fallingwater?

If you get an error when opening a PDF document make sure you have the most recent version of Acrobat from Adobe.

or download the file again. both my MBP and iPhone can open this file without error!

As to the price of Fallingwater® it should be around $50 and be available in late August or early September.

It might be better to select "save to disk" instead of opening the pdf files in a browser.

I not a big fan of these sets, they seem to be a bit overpriced. I have yet to check the price on the last one because i atualy kind of like it... :tongue:

Edit: If they made a model of Frank Lloyd Wrights Wescott house i would get it because its just about three minuts away from my house :wink:

Actually, Fallingwater is going to be around $100, since there are 811 pieces to the set.

Here's a link to the Fallingwater Museum Store:

Damn! I really wanted to collect all of the Architecture series. I already have the Guggenheim but now there is no point in getting the ones I don't like cuz I won't be able to get this one. Does anyone know which of the littler ones are good? Err Fallingwater is my favorite building and now it shall never be mine!

On BrickStructures.Com, they have these (no Fallingwater yet) but they cost more. It says they are signed by the Artist (I forget his name). Does this mean the instructions are signed or what?
