Today, three generations of the Kirk Kristiansen family laid the six foundation bricks for the LEGO House at the construction site in downtown Billund, Denmark. The event - which I was fortunate enough to attend as a representative for the Danish LEGO User Group, Byggepladen.dk, included speeches by LEGO House manager Søren Lund, LEGO CEO Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, architect Bjarke Ingels (BIG) as well as a very thought provoking and inspiring session with director Bo Stjerne Thomsen from LEGO Foundation. Bo engaged all attendees in a lot of fun activities with just six standard 2x4 bricks. I think the pictures (check links below) tell the story of everybody having a really good time.
Thank you to LEGO for inviting Byggepladen.dk. I'm really looking forward to follow LEGO House as it emerges. Also, I hope the AFOL Community will be part of the LEGO House story. Come on, 2016...
