lego architecture and landmark series

in lieu of the 50th anniversary of frank lloyd wright's death, LEGO has released mini flatpak models of two of his most iconic works; the guggenheim museum and fallingwater ($40 and $100, respectively). FLW died six months before the guggenheim was completed, so he was never able to see the final product (or make any improvements to the building that would make it more conducive to viewing art rather than simply standing as an artistic space...but my is it a wonderful place to wander). the two models mark the launch of LEGO's new "architect series" (just in time for the holidays).

LEGO also started a "landmark series" that features the empire state building, seattle space needle, and the john hancock center ($20/each). both will be expanding in the near future. not only will constructing these bad boys be oodles of fun, but the final product will be a wonderful addition to any vacant counter top.
thank you to katherine rodman for the tip and some surprisingly engaging late night instant messages:
