LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition
November 3, 2012 - February 24, 2013
The Art of Building with LEGO®
Draw inspiration for creating your own designs from the LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition exhibition in Henry Ford Museum. LEGO® Certified Professional Adam Reed Tucker has re-created famous landmarks entirely with LEGO® bricks. The exhibition includes 13 models: Fallingwater, 7 South Dearborn, Chicago Spire, John Hancock Center, Marina City, Willis Tower, Trump Tower, Burj Khalifa, Empire State Building, St. Louis Arch, TransAmerica Building, Jin Mao Tower and one of the World Trade Center towers.

Explore the architectural wonders, and then start your own construction project in the nearby play pit. When finished with your masterpiece, place it on our large-scale LEGO® city map that will grow in size with every new builder’s addition.

LEGO® Architecture: Towering Ambition was developed by the National Building Museum, Washington D.C.
Play area sponsored through in-kind donation from LEGO® Systems, Inc. LEGO®, its logo and the brick and knob configuration are trademarks of the LEGO Group. © 2010-12 The LEGO Group.

AAA Traffic & Construction Report
Celebrity moms stole the spotlight, with Reese Witherspoon showing off her growing bump in brilliant blue and new mom Aishwarya Rai hitting the red carpet and facing her critics in a glamorous Elie Saab gown. Along the way we also saw Heidi Klum, Naomi Watts, Jennifer Connelly and more. And we can forget Jane Fonda, who made 74 years old look pretty damn good in her stunning sequined dress..http://www.windstarcruisesblog.com
