The Art of Building with LEGO® Exhibit at The Henry Ford Museum

Draw inspiration for creating your own designs from the LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition exhibition in Henry Ford Museum. LEGO® Certified Professional Adam Reed Tucker has re-created famous landmarks entirely with LEGO® bricks. The exhibition includes 13 models: Fallingwater, 7 South Dearborn, Chicago Spire, John Hancock Center, Marina City, Willis Tower, Trump Tower, Burj Khalifa, Empire State Building, St Louis Arch, TransAmerica Building, Jin Mao Tower and one of the World Trade Center towers.

Explore the architectural wonders, and then start your own construction project in the nearby play pit. When finished with your masterpiece, place it on our large-scale LEGO® city map that will grow in size with every new builder’s addition.

LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition was developed by the National Building Museum, Washington D.C. Play area sponsored through in-kind donation from LEGO® Systems, Inc. LEGO®, its logo and the brick and knob configuration are trademarks of the LEGO Group. © 2010-12 The LEGO Group.

LEGO® Create
After drawing inspiration from awe-inspiring structures, visitors are encouraged to create buildings to include in a LEGO® community. Using principles of good urban design, you’ll be invited to create a building from one of the four categories — residential, commercial, institutional and industrial — and then place the LEGO® models on a large-scale city map.
