Building Blocks: Lego Design and Architecture

What better way to spend the Friday before Father's Day than staring at some of the amazing Lego creations we've featured in the past? Perhaps I'm making a huge generalization, but almost all of the dads I've met in my life have been almost preternaturally gifted when it comes to Lego building skills.

Either way, it's pretty much impossible to resist the pull of incredible (and often hilarious) designs made from those familiar primary colored blocks.

1. James May's Life Size LEGO House Underway (and later demolished)
2. If You Can't Buy It, Make It with Legos: Nelson Bench
3. Lego Kitchen
4. Look! LEGO Park Planter
5. Lego Kitchen Crafts

6. Look! Lego Sofa at Great Stuff
7. Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water in Legos
8. Le Corbusier in Legos
9. Classic Lego Photos by Mike Stimpson: A Lego recreation of Philippe Halsman's 1948 photographic collaboration with Salvador Dalí entitled "Dalí Atomicus".
10. Hilarious memories of New York in Lego by Christoph Niemann
