I look for any possible excuse I can find to play with Legos. When my brother was growing up, I offered to “babysit” him, which in reality consisted of me sitting in the middle of his pile of Legos building while he crawled around the house.

I look for any possible excuse I can find to play with Legos. When my brother was growing up, I offered to “babysit” him, which in reality consisted of me sitting in the middle of his pile of Legos building while he crawled around the house. So to imagine having Lego building being a JOB? Fairly short construction timeframes, no building restrictions, easy to remodel, pretty low carbon footprint, and no liability? Dream. Job.

Meet Adam Tucker of BrickStructures, owner of a dream job. He makes all kinds of models including classic architectural buildings like Falling Water and the World Trade Center, and the model he just created of the Palace of Fine Arts that was unveilled at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It was built in 225 hours with 18,500 Lego pieces. No glue. No custom pieces. It was fun to see him in action at the Museum.

He also made a model of one of my favorite buildings (ok, I am bias on this one), the Smart Home at the Museum of Science and Industry. So cute.
