Recreate the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum® with LEGO® Architecture!
Construct a LEGO® brick model of one of the most significant architectural icons of the 20th century. Located in New York City, the internationally renowned Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum® is hailed as one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s greatest achievements. The building was commissioned in 1943, and on October 21, 1959, Wright's masterpiece was opened to the public, gaining immediate recognition as an architectural landmark. This detailed LEGO model focuses on the building's smoothed concrete facade with its distinctive curves and lines, and features its famous ‘inverted-ziggurat’ rotunda and eight-story annex tower. The Guggenheim’s iconic sign, recreated in a similar typeface, and a section of New York City’s 5th Avenue Museum Mile with its signature yellow cabs complete the model, capturing the essence of this magnificent structure.
