From Toy Block Fortresses to Building Block Kitchens

— September 15, 2012 — Art & Design
These examples of LEGO architecture show off how relevant and pervasive this children's toy has become.

Colorful, easy to stack and popular among both boys and girls, it's no surprise that this product managed to influence spheres like architecture. From buildings that resemble the blocks to damaged buildings with the toy as a means of repair, LEGO is an unpredictable material. Colorful, and incredibly iconic, it makes sense that the designers behind these creation elected to use the pieces. Adding instant personality and a childlike feel, LEGO designs make any creation infinitely more likable. Though not exactly common, architecture that features block-like aspects gets plenty of attention.

Sure to be an ongoing fad, LEGO architecture is incredibly intriguing, and has undeniable appeal.
