Netflix’s LEGO House documentary – my 0.5 second of fame

Netflix has produced interesting documentary about LEGO House. It was available in us for quite some time, but it finally can be seen in Poland where i live.  I’m featured in the documentary for a few frames, filmed while preparing models for Masterpiece Gallery, where my models were exhibited for almost a year.

Lech Walesa visiting Billund

We try to keep as far away from politics as we can, but when famous Freedom Fighter, Nobel Prize Winner, former President of Poland Lech Wałęsa takes a photo with our models, it is something to be proud of.

Lech Wałęsa was invited to the 50th anniversary of Legoland, and Lego made special surprise for him – his own brick build Miniland scale figure.

During the visit, he and his grandsons also visited LEGO House, where he took photos with models of Polish Builders that are being presented in Masterpieces Gallery. Here is he with Jetboy’s creations:

And with Jerac’s builds:

Book about LEGO House

There will be unique book available in LEGO House that is centered on LEGO House creation. First edition is only 2000 copies.  So pretty rare. Here is more info:

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.

Spend a Night in LEGO House!

Unleash your imagination, bring your wildest LEGO vision to life, and fall asleep surrounded by 25 million bricks.

BILLUND – November 2nd – Airbnb and LEGO® House unveil today their most BRICKtastic overnight experience to date. For one night, the newly opened LEGO House in Billund, Denmark will become one family’s private playground. Aspiring master builders, young and old, are asked to put their imagination to the test and describe one thing they would build together with their family if they had an infinite supply of LEGO bricks to enter for a chance to win a night in the LEGO House.

Winners of the contest will enjoy the LEGO House all to themselves for a whole night. They will sleep in a dream LEGO bedroom under a giant LEGO waterfall and create their winning entry with the skillful support of the host, Jamie Berard, one of the finest Master Builders in the world and a true expert of the brick.

“I am so intrigued to see what people will imagine”, says Jamie Berard, Design Manager Specialist at the LEGO Group. “We have unlimited bricks here, and in some ways it can be a bit challenging but it also liberates you to imagine something that is truly meaningful and expressive. The uniqueness of the opportunity to stay in the home of the LEGO brick should hopefully inspire everyone. That’s how I feel when I come here”.

The full experience will begin on November 24th, when the winners will arrive at the LEGO House to be greeted by Jamie who will welcome them to their home for the night. First, they will enjoy lunch where they will be tasked with building their order out of LEGO bricks before it’s sent to the kitchen to be made into real food and served by two friendly robot waiters.

After lunch, the house will close to the general public leaving it empty and ready for the winners to run through the rooms, explore and play under the expert guidance of Jamie. First, they will marvel at the foot of the Tree of Creativity, built by hand from over 6 million bricks. Moving onto the Masterpiece Gallery, showcasing LEGO creations from fans from around the world. From there, they will move on to the Experience Zones where they will be able to direct their own movie, engineer robotic cars, design cities and much more. Nostalgic adults can head down to the basement to trace the timeline of LEGO history and reminisce over the most iconic sets ever produced.

As the adventure comes to an end, they will be invited to the final stop on the journey – a bedroom floating underneath a 6-metre-tall LEGO waterfall, surrounded by a pool of bricks. The whole space will be transformed into a home fit for a superfan, with all items made totally out of LEGO bricks: the teddy bear, lamps, the alarm clock, the TV, story books, and even a pet cat! The home consists of two bedrooms, with beds nestled in pools filled with LEGO System and LEGO DUPLO® bricks, as well as a living room, where the winners can cozy up in LEGO armchairs while enjoying some LEGO TV. But before drifting off into their most colorful dreams ever, the winners will need to get to grips with the endless supply of bricks and bring their winning entry to life.

“Airbnb is all about helping people find magical and unforgettable travel experiences. What could be more magical than having the brand new LEGO House all to yourselves for the night? This really is a dream come true for any family with a passion for LEGO and I doubt there will be much sleeping as there is so much to enjoy in this incredible space,” says James McClure, Airbnb’s General Manager for UK and Nordics.
