Legos are toys, but they are also the source of amazing designs. LEGO artists make use of the small plastic bricks to build everything from robots to architecture. Even the engineers of the company design new elements that allow builders to build more complex models. Erik Varszegi is a Master Builder at the Lego Group, Billund, Denmark. He has designed a brand new element to be used this year, the curved slope. It allows Lego users to create more slanted designs while adhering to the company’s strict colour palette. The slopes can also be used to create a more dynamic shape such as an angled staircase.

Certain Lego sets are the result of the work of professional designers, while others are the result of the well-known Lego Ideas program. The Ideas line allows anyone to create a set, and it’s also possible to produce. It provides fame and 1% of sales for anyone who convinces 10,000 peers that their creation deserves to be created. It’s not surprising that the most elaborate and stunning sets tend to get the most attention, particularly when they feature famous characters or scenes from films and television shows or in real life.

Among the best Lego designs are two space-age icons including the NASA spaceship Discovery and an exact replica of the Hubble Telescope. Each model comes with plaques for display and a miniature Lego replica of the scientist who created the telescope. Other impressive models include a frame Rainbow and a Steampunk Dragon and a replica of Westminster Palace.
