The Museum of Science and Industry hosts a dozen monumental sculptures made of Lego bricks. It opens a debate on the role of architecture in our cities.

The Golden Gate Bridge, the International Space Station, and the Roman Coliseum are only a few examples of monuments built with thousands of the small plastic bricks so dear to children. This exhibition shows how architects and engineers push the limits of design and materials. The exhibition's second part imagines the city of tomorrow in Lego bricks as well. The museum organises challenges, allowing visitors to build their own buildings. A wind tunnel and an ‘earthquake table' enable them to test their building's resistance to wind and earthquakes.
