i HEART lego

Much of my childhood was spent playing with buckets and buckets of Lego. And my mother can tell you that I hated working in more than one colour at a time – I dreamed of a monochromatic life. Monochromatic buildings to be more precise, as I had no desire to build a spaceship or a car. I left that to the boys who mixed their coloured blocks of Lego. So while much of my childhood was spent sorting all my Lego into separate bins of individual colours (you can now easily see where my love of non-colour and almost fascist like approach to design comes from); my life as an adult needs no such tedious task thanks to Lego’s new Architecture Studio. And it’s all white. Deus Ex Machina.


So go buy your own set because, just as in childhood, you can’t borrow my Lego. I don’t share well. Included with the Architecture Studio set is a 272-page inspirational guidebook for learning from some of the world’s most renowned architects. The set is available now for $150 straight from Lego

ps I love that the Lego site tags them as girls, architecture, new, buildings.

  1. How do you find this style of Lego, i prefer City and Technic myself and minifigs, if you have time you can check out my minifig blog.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.
