Another Frank Lloyd Wright Masterpiece Gets the Lego Treatment

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Even if architects like Marcel Breuer or Walter Gropius don’t sound familiar to you, you’ve probably heard of Frank Lloyd Wright. He’s a household name when it comes to architecture, and his Wingspread house, finished in 1939, is his latest masterpiece to be converted into the ideal Lego home for your minifigs.

Another Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece gets the Lego treatment

Jameson Gagnepaln is the creator of this Lego version of Wingspread, also known as theHerbert F. Johnson House, which is still standing near Wind Point, Wisconsin. Some 50,000 bricks and two-and-a-half years of work went into its creation, and though it’s hard to get a sense of scale from the photos, the model measures five-feet long on every side—it’s massive.

So while Lego has already turned Frank Lloyed Wright’s Falling Water into a set you can buy, don’t expect Wingspread to be hitting store shelves anytime soon. [Flickr via The Brothers Brick]
