Play Architect [001]

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation has teamed up with LEGO to release the first of the LEGO Architecture Frank Lloyd Wright Collection sets.

The models of Lloyd Wright's iconic Fallingwater house and Guggenheim Museum have been launched at an exhibition of the architects work at (unsurprisingly) the Guggenheim.

SpaceTM loves the idea, although is a little concerned that the bumps on the bricks at this scale somewhat ruin the clean lines of the originals. Maybe a model of Selfridges Birmingham would be more authentic.

The sets come with booklets of drawings and archive materials and (hopefully) figures of a frowning Corbusier and climbing Matthew Barney.
