Please help me in thanking my ever-patient wife for supporting my LEGO hobby!
Amy Alphin is an elementary school teacher who has built the occasional LEGO set over the years, and keeps a large bag of LEGO bricks in her classroom to help her students survive rainy day recess (which is pretty common in rainy Seattle.) She loves to travel to see natural beauty and visit historic landmarks, and is slowly learning to appreciate architecture too.
Volvo’s Construction Equipment team has partnered with LEGO designers to explore the future of autonomous industrial machinery. Does this weird bug-shaped vehicle give us a window into the future of heavy industry, or does it lack a satisfying bite?
When LEGO Technic started in 1977, one of the first four sets was a forklift. Over the years, there have been nine different forklifts, but the most recent was released in 2005 so it’s about time for a new one! Let’s see if this new version does justice to 41 years of Technic innovation.
Please help me in welcoming Alexander Holroyd to the Brick Architect team! He is our fifth writer.
Alexander is a Seattle-based mathematician and a life-long Technic freak. He is fascinated by mechanisms in all their complexity and simplicity, especially when applied to kinetic art and mechanical computation, and of course, especially when implemented in LEGO.
I recently visited one of the only Art Deco cities in the world—Napier, New Zealand is a hidden architectural gem worth visiting! Let’s learn how that trip inspired me to explore the architectural style using LEGO.
In the second half of Brick Architect’s interview with Creator Expert designer Jamie Berard, we’re focusing on 10 years of the Modular Building series. I learned a lot during our interview, and think you will find it interesting too!
