MILWAUKEE — One of Milwaukee’s most iconic buildings may soon come to life in LEGO form.
Artist Vida András has created an intricate LEGO design representing Santiago Calatrava’s Milwaukee Art Museum pavilion.
Similar to the museum’s design by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the wings of the LEGO model appear to move up and down.
The LEGO Architecture series has given adults a chance to get back to their childhood and their love of LEGOs. The sets depict real-life landmarks like the Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Great Wall of China and the Statue of Liberty.
LEGO design artist, András, says he was fascinated by the “architectural language” the Calatrava uses.
Read the full description from the artist below:
“I was really excited to try and represent Santiago Calatrava’s Milwaukee Art Museum pavilion. I was always fascinated about the architectural language Calatrava is using. Trying to represent the beautiful curves and lines from the real building was challenging, but after some structure tests and shape studies, I arrived at my build. I’m really happy that LEGO gives us this opportunity, and after a great success at LEGO Rebrick, I’m happy to present it as a possible set piece. It would make a beautiful addition to the already amazing models, it has a various mix of bricks for future creativity, and possibly inspiring to young and older people as well. © 2019 – Vida András”
While only a design, András hopes to bring it to life.
