Fallingplastic? LEGO Does Frank Lloyd Wright Designs

Now you can get your kids hooked on modern architecture at an early age with new sets by LEGO based on Frank Lloyd Wright's Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater. Read/listen to the NPR story here.

That Lego architecture set would be great for kids to let them know about at architecture an early age.

The guy who designs these happened to be at Fallingwater the same day I visited a few weeks back and I got my set signed by him. A nice coincidence, since I had planned to purchase the set anyway. He brought with him a much larger scale Fallingwater model that he was in the process of building.

He said there are more sets coming soon, but couldn't give anything away yet. The problem with these sets is they are pricey, even for Lego. The Fallingwater set was $100 and a Space Needle set I picked up in Seattle was $20 - and that one didn't have very many parts.
