The LEGO Model of LEGO House is on exhibition at the Design Museum in London in the period 12 September 2018 – 6 January 2019.

The LEGO model is part of the “Beazley Design of the Year 2018”. Every year since 2008 hundreds of design experts from around the world nominate the most innovative designs from the past 12 months. LEGO HOUSE by BIG is one of the nominated in the architecture category this year. The nominated designs are on display – and the LEGO Model built by Lasse Vestergård represents LEGO HOUSE.

FAER – Faroe Islands Education Center opens

Just in time for the school year to begin, BIG completes the 19,200m2 education center in the capital city of the Faroe Islands.

The opening for three different schools now gathered under one roof was celebrated with 3500 people from the local area.

The LEGO model of Glasir (FAER) is mounted in a showcase inside the new beautiful building.

Faroe Islands Education Center welcomes more than 1,200 students and 300 teachers in the vortex shaped campus that radiates out towards its surroundings while creating an inner landscape for communal learning.

2WTC – 2 World Trade Center

The model of Two World Trade Center has now been fully designed!  The next step will be to build this incredible skyscraper out of physical LEGO.
These renderings show the completed digital model.  Although it may look simple from the outside, the model features numerous angles and façade techniques which require sideways construction.  Overall, the entire model consists of more than 8,600 pieces, most of which are transparent 1×2 plates.  One thing the renderings don’t show quite accurately, is the medium blue color which lies beneath the transparent façade.  These medium blue elements will give the model a soft blue tint, similar to the actual reflection of the sky that the curtain wall façade will have when the building is completed.
Additionally, the model will feature greenery at street level as well as on each rooftop terrace as the skyscraper ascends to its full height.
Stay tuned for more updates as the model is physically built.
