"Starting in 2006, with kits of the Sears Tower (now the Willis Tower), Seattle Space Needle and Empire State Building, Tucker has been the force behind the toy-maker's unlikeliest success, its Lego Architecture series. The pieces are pricey, serious, intensely complex and sold to teenagers and tourists -- though, as a Lego executive told me, 'many are bought by 45-year-old architects who put them on their office shelves.'"
