It's been called the "Sexiest Building in the World." Our Milwaukee Art Museum is indeed an international architectural icon and a recognized symbol of the city. And soon, you may be able to build your own - with LEGOs.
Quoting Bobby Tanzilo of OnMilwaukee.com: "Adults seem to love the LEGO Architecture series of kits as much as kids – maybe more. And it's easy to see why. These amazing little models of landmarks like the Seattle Space Needle, the U.S. Capitol, miniature Venice and the Eiffel Tower, are sleek and modern-looking, often in stark white or black bricks.
Those white LEGOs are perfect for rendering works by Santiago Calatrava, including the Quadracci Pavilion the Spanish architect designed for the Milwaukee Art Museum.
Brickmaster Vida Andras, an artist from Budapest, has created a LEGO Calatrava that he hopes will be added to the LEGO Architecture series, and he posted this evocative video showing his version, which is extremely detailed and authentic, including the staircase with its railings running up the middle, between the brise soleil wings."
