LEGO as a Construction Material

New York Magazine

Artist Melissa Marks and interface designer Vicente Caride decided to renovate their Manhattan home to provide some privacy for their son Archie, and they let their common love of LEGOS guide the project.

Melissa and Vicente cooked up the concept with Suzan Wines of I-Beam Design, then they pulled in LEGO artist Sean Kenney. It took two weeks of fourteen hour days for Kenney and his team to assemble the wall and staircase consisting of 20,000 LEGO bricks. The form and colors of the LEGOS provide a motif that is carried throughout the apartment, and Archie and friends continue to add structures to the staircase.
