Lego has long lead the way in plastic brick products. The expandability of the products are brilliant. The numerous themes and tie-ins are endless. My faves are “City,” a collection of urban professionals going about their business (like you and me), and “fishing Boat,” a high tech plastic sea faring craft (fish excluded). Now Lego has released its new progressive architecture line, including the Guggenheim Musuem and Falling Water by Frank Lloyd Wright, Farnsworth House by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Burj Khalifa in Dubai developed by Emaar Properties.

For those who never made it through the rigors of architecture school, now there’s an opportunity. For those who love plastic blocks, now there’s more than a castle to build. The only problem with Falling Water, however, is the roof leaks. And watch out not to build Burj Khalifa too high, it has a tendency to lean and fall down.
