On the first day of Christmas, my ____ gave to me….
I was in a bookstore the other day and exlaimed to my kids “LOOK! Lego is doing architecture!”
“Yeah,” they said. “We know.” They are huge Lego fans, though their tastes run more to Star Wars or Knights or Space Police. They only get excited about the Empire State Building when King Kong is on top of it in a 1933 b&w movie, and even then, only if I serve popcorn.
Later, while they were making their own Christmas lists, they arrived in the kitchen with sly smiles on their faces. “So which did you like better?” they inquired. Slyly. “The landmarks or the architecture?” I asked for a clarification on what the difference was. It seems Landmarks rise high in the sky and Architecture has the name of a well-known and much-revered architect (who rates a ® after his name) attached to it.
I suspect they may chip in and get me one of these (so I can enjoy Lego assembly along with them on Christmas morning).
You may want to add one to your shopping list for the building lover you love.
