Though architects and architecture as a whole is often teased as being an excessively self-serious profession, many architects found their interest in the field after playing with LEGO, and a new BBC documentary called 'LEGO - The Building Blocks of Architecture' explores that relationship. The short film looks at LEGO's impact on the field of architecture as a whole, both in terms of the impact that it had on famous architects growing up and in the way that it's reflected in modern architectural practices.

LEGO has recently been at the forefront of architectural news thanks to the completion of the LEGO House in Billund, a visitor center that serves as a museum dedicated to the decades old building toys. This makes the current moment ideal for investigating LEGO in architecture.
