With the recent announcement of the LEGO movie, it's clear that the colored blocks aren't just playthings for children anymore. Now the manufacturer has made it possible to create modern architecture using LEGOs. LEGO Architecture Studio is a design kit that includes 1,210 bricks in 73 different shapes, along with a thorough guide providing architectural tips and information. Using a mix of white and transparent pieces, users can try out hands-on exercises written in part by today's top architects.

This particular LEGO toolkit was specifically designed for adults. LEGO Architecture Studio is available for purchase for $149.99 here, or at a Barnes & Noble store.
