The decision is officially out of our hands. After months of voting, Vida András’ LEGO design of the Milwaukee Art Museum has reached the final round of review in the LEGO Ideas competition.
All we can do now is wish him luck.
In May, it was only a thought that the Milwaukee Art Museum could be transformed into a LEGO set. Thousands of votes later, and now it seems like it really might happen. The model qualified in the top 25 product ideas for the 2020 LEGO Ideas Review.
In our annual love fest for the city we call home, readers and editors alike give mad props to the people, places and things that rev us up right now. From restaurants to remodelers, we’ve curated more than 100 reasons for you to get out and explore Milwaukee.
The next round begins on May 3. It will be a review period by the head honchos over at LEGO. From there, a winner will be chosen, and an official LEGO set will be constructed.
Here’s to hoping the winning set resembles the literal work of art that hosts art on Milwaukee’s lakefront.
András, who has a background in architecture, was inspired by Santiago Calatrava’s complex shapes used in the pavilion at the Milwaukee Art Museum. He tried to keep his model simple by using powerful shapes like triangles so that he could use as few bricks as possible.
