And then God created Lego

Lego (an abbreviation for lege godt, meaning play well in Danish) is a popular toy which enhances kids’ problem-solving skills in playful and fun ways. There’s no doubting its positive impact on popular culture and children’s entertainment.

But clearly its ambitions don’t end there. Now they want to build the housing of the future.

Well not Lego exactly but Copenhagen-based architectural superheroes Bjarke Ingels Group.

Their latest project is Lego Towers, described by them as an attempt to ‘utilize the modularity and rationality of the Danish modernistic building tradition to create a new kind of expressive architecture.’

Take a tour of their frankly mind-blowing vision.
