Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater in LEGO



It took LEGO artist Matija Grguric 7 months and 15,000 bricks to recreate Frank Lloyd Wright's masterpiece Fallingwater. It's currently on display at a museum in Zageb, Croatia. Grguric writes:

Scale of the building is minifig, or approximate 1:40. One of the issues was how to make the stone walls of the building. The result here is made out of 4 different shades of grey (old grey and bley). Other was the terrain and vegetation. In the end I decided to make it in winter atmosphere. Snow is something I always enjoy, and I was always more of a winter type of person, so here it is - my first snowy MOC. :)

Building process spread over total of almost 7 months, and the structure is made out of more than 15000 bricks (just an approximate guess). It is placed on 6 48*48 baseplates, and measures 115 x 80 x 50 cm. It weights more than 20 kg.

Wow, that is fantastic. One thing I distinctly remember about Frank Lloyd Wright is that he had a penchant of not using rebar in his concrete - so a number of his buildings (like Falling Water) are now crumbling.
