LEGO has unveiled the first iteration of ‘the LEGO house’ museum by BIG. reportedly to become ‘the best museum ever’ according to bjarke ingels himself, the building will express the ‘systematic creativity’ of the modular brick toys and is projected to attract 250,000 visitors annually. set to open in 2016 in denmark, the museum will use the built form to convey the tenants of LEGO play– stimulated learning and connective thinking. the building will reportedly stand 30 meters tall with a network of publicly accessible roofs and distinct interior plaza. exhibition space will total 7600 square meters while a cafe and store bolster programming. the architecture seeks to be a meeting point for both enthusiasts and citizens of billund, the birthplace of LEGO.

  • Best museum EVER?? In contemporary usage, “ever” actually means, since the last posting. whatEVER.

    Voices says:
  • No any pillars on the “forum” underneath the building? There are like 50 meters of roof with exhibition space above-what`s holding it? There will be a lot collumns, if this project will ever be realised… I hate how BIG always does this on their renderings-hiding the construction elements to impress people, to get the project…i think, it`s unethical on so many levels…

  • Hope they don’t lose any pieces under the couch…

  • Simply Awesome!
