Bricks and Beverages: Professionals Play with LEGO Bricks

When: 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM FRIDAY, ARCHTOBER 16

Where: At The Center   

In their quest to meet deadlines, architects do not get much opportunity to play at design. The Center for Architecture and LEGO invite young professionals for "Bricks and Beverages," a fun and lively game night that will rekindle our participants' love of LEGOs while enjoying a night out among friends and colleagues.

"Bricks and Beverages" will consist of a LEGO build competition with an architectural challenge. Participants in teams (1-5 people per team) will randomly draw a building type (museum, stadium, theater) and styles (Chicago School, Brutalist, Gothic) from a hat to create a wacky design mandate. A LEGO prize will be awarded to the best team, selected by a panel of judges. 

Wine, beer, snacks, and a custom, LEGO-inspired cocktail will be served.
