After decades building everything from medieval forts to space ships, Lego has launched its Frank Lloyd Wright Collection as part of its Architecture Series.

Budding architects will be able to build the Guggenheim Museum and the cantilevered ‘Fallingwater’ building, which was built in the 1930s outside of Pittsburgh for US businessman and philanthropist Edgar J Kaufmann. The Lego model even replicates the water running underneath the house.

Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation director of licensing and product development Doug Volker said: “The LEGO product was one that the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation had considered pursuing for several years.”

The collection, which was unveiled at the opening of the Frank Lloyd Wright exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York on 15 May, contains information and archival historical material for each iconic building.
