Imagination Station has reserved the largest building blocks for their littlest visitors. Visitors who are too young for LEGO bricks, or just looking for a different building material, can build with Big Blue Blocks located in their own special section within the exhibit space.
"Personally, I view the LEGO brick first and foremost as an art medium. No different than, say paint to a painter or metal to a blacksmith. My creations are an artistic celebration, a sculptural exploration of architecture in its grandest most impressive form, the skyscraper. When attempting to interpret these mega-structures using LEGO bricks, one is forced to rely on the raw architectural visual statements the architect had intended. For this very reason, I see my creations as a form of sculpture celebrating the shape, proportions and overall harmony, rather than a literal representation.”
