"The brainchild of Arlington Heights, Ill.-native Adam Reed Tucker, one of only 16 LEGO® Certified Professionals in the world and creator of the LEGO Architecture line, Blocks to Bricks is conceived as an immersive celebration of 3D imagination. Part museum, part hi-tech, interactive adventure, part retail store, the 13,000-sq.-ft. experience takes visitors through a serpentine of discovery covering nearly 150 years of construction “toys.” More than 6,000 rare and unique artifacts, including an original Lincoln Log set created by the son of Frank Lloyd Wright, trace the evolution of creative materials from stone through wood, metal, paper and plastic. The largest of 13 walk-through zones is dedicated to the LEGO brick, featuring mind-boggling, oversized creations by Tucker and other of the world’s most talented LEGO artists, a black-light room, and display of every LEGO piece and LEGO mini-figure ever made."
