BIG’s Lego House Breaks Ground

Lego House

Lego HouseThree generations of the owner family of the LEGO Group today laid the six foundation stones of the LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, the hometown of the LEGO Group.
Lego HouseThe six stones – precisely dimensioned to represent six classic LEGO® bricks – symbolise the values which are at the heart of all LEGO experiences: Imagination, creativity, fun, learning, caring and quality.
Lego HouseThe LEGO House will be a hands-on minds-on experience center where LEGO fans of all ages can come and experiment with LEGO bricks, share stories with LEGO bricks, express their imagination and creativity through LEGO bricks, and not least be challenged as LEGO builders by meeting other builders from all over the world.
Lego HouseWhile the interior experiences of the LEGO House are still under development, the building is in itself a tribute to the LEGO brick, as the architectural shapes are based on the LEGO brick. The building is expected to open for visitors in 2016. Bjarke Ingels, Founding Partner of BIG-Bjarke Ingels Group and the architect behind the LEGO House said:
Lego House“We have been inspired by the modularity of the LEGO brick to create the LEGO House. It will appear like a cloud of interlocking LEGO bricks that form spaces for exploration and exhibition for its visitors within. On the outside the pile of bricks form the roof of a new covered square as well as a mountain of interconnected terraces and playgrounds.” Source by LEGO Group.
