LEGO Architecture exhibit visits The Henry Ford

LEGO Architecture: Ford Field

Recently, I had the opportunity to see the traveling LEGO Architecture: Towering Ambition exhibit at The Henry Ford museum in Dearborn, MI. This exhibit contains 14 scale models of buildings from around the world built entirely out of LEGO bricks. The exhibition will be at The Henry Ford until February 24, 2013.

The first model is of Detroit's Ford Field, which was built before museum-goers' eyes during the exhibit's opening weekend November 3-4, 2012. Ford Field is the home of the Detroit Lions and was the home of Super Bowl XL on February 5, 2006. As the model was built on-site during opening weekend by designer Adam Reed Tucker, there are no statistics on the model, unlike the other models in this gallery.
