I don’t remember playing with Legos much as a child, so I’ve never really understood the appeal of bins full of plastic bricks my nephew and other children collect. So when my husband suggested that we step into the Discovery Place’s Architectural Lego exhibit on a whim, I was a little skeptical.
When we entered I was blown away. The exhibit featured detailed replicas of famous skyscrapers, including the Burj Khalifa in Dubai, and Willis Tower in Chicago. Some of the buildings created a skyline above a curved, lighted counter where visitors could construct their own Lego building to add to the exhibit.
We took a seat and began designing our own skyscrapers. I gathered up gray bricks and windows to form a lair worthy of a bond villain. I envisioned the floor with blue windows as a tank that I could slowly drown my enemies in (giving James Bond plenty of time to escape!).
