The world has many famous buildings, and a few of these are re-created miniature-style numerous times each year by dozens of architects, hobbyists, and school children. But it seems to me that it's always a little more impressive when it's done with LEGO bricks.
Artist and architect Adam Reed Tucker has been busy with a set of his own 15 miniature (or may I call them 'bigatures'? One is nearly 18 feet tall!) models of world-famous buildings, including the Willis Tower (Sears Tower), Empire State Building, the Burj Khalifa, and my personal favorite, the St. Louis Gateway Arch. (And he does it without glue.) Tucker's creations are currently on display at the National Building Museum. You can read another article here and see a few more pictures here. The National Building Museum's exhibit is open until September 5, 2011, so they'll be on display for a whole year yet. Tickets are only $5 USD for non-members, and seriously, if you can find a chance to go see them, do!
