Art, architecture and engineering merged to create a minimal “ribbon of steel” that bridges the two banks of the Thames by London’s St Paul’s Cathedral
Icon celebrated its 100th issue during this year’s London Design Festival, with a party and by showing off the Lego skills of leading architects.
To celebrate our 100th issue, Icon will present an exhibition during the London Design Festival showing remakes of Lego's Architectural Classics series by some of the most exciting architects in London. In the accompanying café, visitors will have the opportunity to create their own Lego models which will be displayed alongside those by Foster, Adjaye, Make, FAT and others.
Lego has a series of models reproducing “classic” works of architecture: Fallingwater, the Empire State Building and so on. But the fun of the toy is that you can make anything you like. So what happens when you give these models to some leading British architects to remake?
