• Book around the LEGO House


    Jan Beyer

    Dear all, my LEGO House colleagues informed me that there will be a very interesting book around the LEGO House available from now on.

    So I believe this could be very interesting for some of you.

    Feel free to share.

    Than

    Building a Dream

    Author: LEGO House and e-types.
     

    Price: 249 DKK - The book can only be purchased at LEGO® House in Billund.
     

    Language: English.

     

    Edition: 2000 pcs.

     

    Idea development and construction of LEGO House has taken seven years. On 28 September 2017, a proud director, Jesper Vilstrup, finally opened the doors to Denmark's newest experience center together with the royal family and with the attention of world press.

     

    LEGO® House is a unique experience house located in the center of Billund – Home of the Brick. Here, LEGO fans of all ages can experience the magic of the LEGO universe and get the ultimate LEGO experience all year round. Both kids and adults meet a number of new LEGO experiences and a sea of LEGO bricks, where you can unleash your creativity.

     

    The heart of the 12.000 m2 LEGO House is the experience zones which consist of four colored play areas, a spectacular Masterpiece Gallery, where fans can exhibit their impressive creations and a History Collection, where guests experience the company's and LEGO brand's development over time.

     

    Building a Dream is built as a combined interview and photo book, which both tells the vision behind the house and through great photos shows the development of idea and building. Three people have been at the heart of the project: Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, 3rd generation LEGO owner, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, chairman of LEGO Brand Group and Bjarke Ingels, international architect.

    Photos are taken by photographer Jens Honoré.

    I could see it and touch it at the LEGO House a couple of weeks ago... it's really wonderful! Unfortunately it was not for sale yet and couldn't buy it!

    Yes, it was very frustrating.  They were there in the stock room on the 60th Anniversary, but not available for sale.  :-(

    (Excellent book though!)

    Shared on BricksFanz today, I love these sort of books, hopefully I can get to Billund to buy one before they are sold out!

    We were told, at the LEGO House, that they will not sell out. 2000 should just be the initial print run.

    I have learned about the book just before Christmas (http://zusammengebaut.com/exklusives-lego-house-buch-building-a-dream-vorgestellt-40974/) and I immediately "recruit" @Francesco Spreafico to help me to get one (he have a lot of chance to go to LEGO House than me).

    He try to get a copy both for himself and for me, but as Francesco says, unfortunately it was not for sale yet and he couldn't buy it!

    I'm very sad now 
    :(
