The Author has already remarked on the popularity of Lego across national and cultural borders:
As the Liberty Bell
As a child’s backpack
As a stone in Ephesus (a notable anachronism)
As ‘The Red Room’ from Twin Peaks
As Patience, the New York Public Library Lion
The Author is happy to share an example of Lego-inspired Architecture: a group of colorful block building outside Bruges (as spotted from 270 feet above ground, at the top of the Belfry).
