LEGO Architecture on CNN Style

I was interviewed for this new article at CNN Style, alongside LEGO Set designer Rok Žgalin Kobe.

In the article, Rok shared some new insights on the challenges in translating a real building to a LEGO set. I offered additional advise when designing your own LEGO architecture model: “Start by looking at the building, figuring out what the hardest part is going to be and building that first.”

I also talked about the many fan-made LEGO creations, including several models featured in The LEGO Architect, and some of the custom sets featured in on our list of Unofficial LEGO Architecture Sets.
