Art of Architecture

Gallery features Architecture Sculptures Made with Legos

(Kansas City, MO – May 31, 2016) The Art of Architecture at The Box Gallery features sculptures of architectural landmarks made entirely from Lego bricks. The artist, Adam Reed Tucker, is a Lego Certified Professional. The exhibit opens on First Friday, June 3rd and runs through August 26, 2016.

The exhibit will include 12 large-scale models that capture the essence of some of the most famous buildings in the world, including the Empire State Building, Jim Mao Tower, the Gateway Arch and the Willis Tower. The sculptures were created with hundreds of thousands of Lego pieces and built without the use of glue or adhesives.

After earning degree in Architecture from Kansas State University’s College of Architecture, Planning and Design, Adam Reed Tucker worked as an architect throughout the Kansas City and Chicago areas. Adam decided to leave his architecture job to focus on building with a new creative medium, the Lego brick. In 2007 he became the 7th person to be a Lego Certified Professional –one of only 13 in the World. He was also the co-creator of the Lego Architecture line featuring smaller scale architectural models.

Art of Architecture will be on display from June 3rd through August 26, 2016. The Box Gallery is located in the Commerce Bank Building at 1000 Walnut Street, Kansas City, MO 64106.
