ABSTRACT
The article features the work of Barnaby Gunning, a principal at the Barnaby Gunning Architects in Great Britain in using approximately three million LEGO blocks to construct a building and filmed by BBC. It notes that Gunning uses Luxology's Modo to plan the LEGO house, which needed careful planning to ensure that the crew did not run out of LEGOs. The article also mentions that architect Gunning used the software to come up with optimal design for the overall structure and the furnishings inside.
