During the event the participants will have an opportunity to build with LEGO Architecture Studio and demonstrate how one can explore the design process in architecture through a hands-on exercise building exercise. The event will focus on what the main stages of the architectural process are, from defining your project, gathering inspiration, and exploration of the context, to researching and developing your concept. Participants will build as a team and as individuals.
Additionally, the store will offer architecture fans the first look at a new LEGO Architecture product that can only be found for sale in Barnes & Noble and LEGO brand outlets from July 25-28.
