If you’re a fan of Lego, architecture and Frank Lloyd Wright, this is very exciting new toy. To coincide with the 150th anniversary of the birth of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, Lego has made a new addition to its architectural model series: the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum. Lego’s 744-piece model-making kit recreates the museum’s circular concrete rotunda, the 10-storey limestone tower behind, and the distinctive lettering on the facade. It also recreates part of Fifth Avenue in front, complete with the city’s famous yellow taxis.
This model which measures 12 centimetres (four inches) high, 19 centimetres wide (seven inches) and 14 centimetres (five inches) deep comes with a booklet containing details about the design and history of the building. It is available to buy directly from Lego, or from American retailer Target.
Lego has previously recreated many architectural masterpieces as part of its Lego Architecture series. Others include the Burj Khalifa and the Empire State Building.
