This fascinating guide includes a foreword by renowned LEGO architectural artist Adam Reed Tucker. Tucker strives to capture the essence of a particular architectural landmark in its pure sculptural form. He does not view his models as literal replicas, but rather as artistic interpretations using LEGO bricks as a medium. As he continues to explore how to capture new LEGO Architecture buildings with LEGO bricks and plates, he finds the possibilities and challenges they offer almost magical.

FallingWater


LEGO Artist: Adam Reed Tucker

"I wanted to engage the builder and to make the model interactive and dynamic. It slides apart sequentially, like a Japanese puzzle box."


The Model

A sizable and complex model, Fallingwater uses its large number of bricks to represent both the house and its surroundings.


In Focus

The roof, the house's different levels, and even the base can be removed, revealing the inner parts and structure of the building.

The Original

Trees, rocks, and water dominate Fallingwater's rural Pennsylvania site. While the stone-built portions of the house seem grounded and integrated with the natural stone beneath, the cantilevered terraces seem to float free in the landscape, almost touching the surrounding dense foliage.
