The World’s Tallest Building In Lego Form


Lego has just announced that the next building in their Lego Architecture series (which has previously featured replications of the Guggenheim Museum, Falling Water, and the Farnsworth House) will be Dubai’s Burj Khalifa — aka the world’s tallest building. (This should not be confused with the world’s tallest Lego tower, a 102-foot-tall monstrosity which 6,000 people helped erect in Sao Paulo, Brazil last month.) An interesting bit of trivia: This marks the first time that the series will represent a building outside the United States; maybe we’ll see something like Turning Torso or Casa da Musica next. Look for the Burj Khalifa in Lego stores and online beginning June 1. [via Curbed]
