Wednesday: "Block by Block" at Norton Museum of Art
"I didn┐t want cookie-cutter buildings that would get lost in the shuffle of the other skyscrapers. Mostly, I just wanted to confound people," architect Dan Parker told the Sun Sentinel last week, referring to his outsize re-creations of the world's most-majestic skyscrapers ┐ in Lego form. Ten of them are on display at the Norton Museum of Art exhibition "Block by Block: Inventing Amazing Architecture." Some buildings tower 9 feet high (a scale model of 1 World Trade Center) and at least one is inspired by Parker's home state (Seattle's Space Needle). Other Lego-made landmarks include Dubai's Burj Khalifa, London's Gherkin and Taiwan's Taipei 101. $5-$12. 561-832-5196 or Norton.org.
