Summary

To mark the release of The Lego Movie on Friday, Tom Dyckhoff explores the toy's relationship with architecture - and argues that it has changed the way people think about buildings. He meets artists and architects who played with it as children and who are using it to reimagine cities today, and looks at how cult computer game Minecraft may be set to transform urban landscapes of the future. With contributions by Alain de Botton, Peter Molyneux, Bjarke Ingels, Mark Dudek and Olafur Eliasson.
