Die britische BBC hat vor ein paar Tagen eine Liste mit den „Besten Gebäuden 2017“ veröffentlicht. Insgesamt acht Bauwerke sind gelistet, neben der Hamburger Elbphilharmonie und dem Yves Saint Laurent Museum in Marrakesch wird auch das in diesem Jahr eröffnete LEGO House in Billund genannt.

Das sagt die BBC zum LEGO House:

One familiar way of dismissing contemporary architecture is to say that this or that new building ‘looks like Lego’. Lego’s famous interlocking plastic bricks first went on sale in 1949 just as Modernist architecture, derived from the Bauhaus, went truly global and four-square, Cubist-like buildings lined city streets from Sydney to San Francisco. Here, nearly 70 years on, is Lego’s own feeling on the subject, the Lego House visitor centre in the Danish company’s hometown that really does look as if it is made of giant blocks of Lego. And, why not? After all, the Legoland theme park is virtually next door, while Danish architect Bjarke Ingels’ firm BIG has made its name with bold, highly expressive buildings that, rarely less than controversial, make perfect sense in the context of a brightly coloured Lego visitor centre that can be clambered over and explored in artful, knowing and playful fashion.

Herzlichen Glückwunsch nach Billund!
