LEGO Architecture

Last week I blogged about Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures partnering with LEGO to create a new LEGO Architecture line, primarily aimed at sales in museums, landmarks and other tourist destinations. This interview on Chicago WBEZ radio (audio and a transcript available at the link) gives more details on how this came together. Perhaps the key new news in this piece is "Lego’s next endeavor in its architectural line includes New York’s Empire State Building and Seattle’s Space needle, which are scheduled to come out later this year." If you look at the accompanying photo, you can see these models, plus two that I think are the Trump building and Aon Center, both in Chicago (this from comparing to the large models he features on his site).
