Get Amazed for whats coming up at LEGO

BIG‘s LEGO House is now under construction, following a one of a kind foundation laying ceremony featuring – what else – super sized lego bricks. Bjarke Ingels himself was in attendance to lay one of the foundation bricks. Constructed in LEGO‘s hometown of Billund. 

The gallery at the very top of the design is modeled after a gigantic LEGO brick, labelled the ‘Keystone’ by BIG. Inside, the LEGO House will feature multiple ‘experience areas’, a cafĂ©, a unique LEGO store, and a 2,000 square metre public square, as well as several open roof terraces. LEGO Group hopes that the LEGO House will host approximately 250,000 people annually.

The architect, Bjarke Ingels, designed the entire building to look like the iconic Lego brick, and a gigantic Lego brick will sit atop the 75-foot-tall building. Ingels described the concept for the building as follows.

Lego hopes the Lego Experience House will deliver the ultimate Lego experience, letting people of all ages channel their creativity while building things with Lego. Visitors can share their creations with other Lego fans from around the world, as well as with the designers of official Lego products. The building will feature vast experience areas, where you can create to your heart's content, as well as a cafe, a Lego store, and several open roof terraces to hang out and talk about Lego.
