This new attraction would serve as a celebration of the brick and give Billund a significant town centre. Now, the official gift shop is selling a new book that follows the development of the LEGO House, through interviews with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp and Bjarke Ingels.
Here is the official description and pricing information:
Building a Dream
Price: 249 DKK – The book can only be purchased at LEGO® House in Billund.
Edition: 2000 pcs.
Idea development and construction of LEGO House has taken seven years. On 28 September 2017, a proud director, Jesper Vilstrup, finally opened the doors to Denmark’s newest experience center together with the royal family and with the attention of world press.
LEGO® House is a unique experience house located in the center of Billund – Home of the Brick. Here, LEGO fans of all ages can experience the magic of the LEGO universe and get the ultimate LEGO experience all year round. Both kids and adults meet a number of new LEGO experiences and a sea of LEGO bricks, where you can unleash your creativity.
The heart of the 12.000 m2 LEGO House is the experience zones which consist of four colored play areas, a spectacular Masterpiece Gallery, where fans can exhibit their impressive creations and a History Collection, where guests experience the company’s and LEGO brand’s development over time.
Building a Dream is built as a combined interview and photo book, which both tells the vision behind the house and through great photos shows the development of idea and building. Three people have been at the heart of the project: Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen, 3rd generation LEGO owner, Jørgen Vig Knudstorp, chairman of LEGO Brand Group and Bjarke Ingels, international architect.
Photos are taken by photographer Jens Honoré.
Tickets to visit the LEGO House can be booked at the venue’s official website.
