The Icon Build Off 26.08.11

To celebrate its 100th issue, Icon will be holding "the Icon Build Off" during the London Design Festival, at Renzo Piano's Central St Giles in London. Here you'll be able to see for yourself the Lego models we featured in Icon 098, the "Toys" issue. We asked some of London's top architects, including Foster and Partners, Adjaye Associates and FAT to remodel a building from Lego's series of architectural classics, which includes Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and the Empire State Building.

We are inviting visitors to get involved, too. Lego will be providing an interactive playspace where a selection of the Lego kits will be available for you to create your own masterpiece. If you're happy with the results, you can upload an image to Icon's Facebook page, www.facebook.com/iconeye to be in with a chance to win a kit of your own.
