Art in Architecture includes 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 a 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 seventh 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.
