After months of waiting, fears that it would never return, and some very real concerns that there was just not enough LEGO-based news to report to you on a regular basis, Tenuous LEGOLAND-Based Blog of the Week is back!
This week, something architectural that’s not a really tall tower or even a fetching LEGO hat. It turns out that LEGO architecture goes further than just strengthening the walls of your LEGO castle so it can withstand siege from the LEGO pirates (something I still do on a regular basis).
Five of the best architects in Scotland (the spiritual home of the architect) have accepted a challenge to design a building using LEGO. At this point I’d like to offer you my opinion, if you don’t want it feel free to skip to the next paragraph. The thing about LEGO is it’s designed for building stuff. Why only last week I built an entire spooky village for no other reason than Hollyoaks was on and I couldn’t wrestle the remote from the missus. What I’m trying to say here is… it’s not really a challenge is it? It’s like giving Ferrari four wheels, and engine and some metal, and asking them to make a car.
The LEGO designs were showcased at the Scottish Design Awards Nominations Exhibition yesterday. The designs then will be auctioned off for charity some time in May. The money raised will go to a very worthy cause, the National Autism Society Scotland.
It feels good to be back.
