The LEGO Architect
The Lego Architect, by Tom Alphin
(No Starch Press, 2015), hb., 186 pp.
This book is a fascinating idea well presented. The author presents seven different architectural styles and then shows how to build in that style with Lego pieces. To get started he presents a brief history of architecture, and throughout the book he presents nice color photos of good examples of buildings from around the world in each style. I just expected a guide to building with Lego, but realized this was also an engaging way to learn about real architecture.
The guides to building with Lego are detailed and easy to follow. If you or your children enjoy Lego, this will be a fun book for building and learning.
