Brick by Brick

Discover your inner builder.

As human beings, we've always used our ingenuity to reshape our surroundings. We learn from our experiences, rewriting the rules by experimenting and playing with new ideas. Play is the gateway to creativity. When you give yourself permission to play, you can create new worlds, invent the future and build the unbelievable.

Brick by Brick pairs giant LEGO®-built structures with hands-on building challenges to to showcase how architects and engineers push the limits of design to make the seemingly impossible possible.

Built by LEGO Certified Professional Adam Reed Tucker, each model includes thousands of bricks and hundreds of hours of trial and error.
