The Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago created its “Brick by Brick” exhibit to make the ideas behind large and complex structures more accessible. With models built entirely from LEGOs, the show emphasizes the aspects of play at work in architecture. The museum asked design firms and schools to use the beloved plastic blocks to imagine new models for sustainable building. Our contribution, titled “More with Less,” represents an abstract structural network of bricks that can be scaled to an array of building typologies. Shown here are some of the study models created during the design process for the final exhibition, on view at the museum until September.
