That’s what’s so heartening about the Bjarke Ingels Group design for the Lego House: It takes imagination and possibility, qualities that were once practically synonymous with Lego, and injects them into a real-world structure. There are fake plastic trees and a maze (something of a signature for BIG) in the Lego House design. I’m nearly 30 years too late for this zany ziggurat, and still I demand to be taken there immediately.
