This LEGO House Is A Childhood Fantasy Come To Life

If you thought the two-story red, blue and yellow masterpiece you constructed purely from LEGOs as a kid was impressive, then you're going to love this.

BIG, a Danish architecture firm, is creating a "LEGO house" to become a creative learning "experience center" complete with displays and installations to engage the expected 250,000 annual guests. The first bricks --or should we say blocks?-- were laid just this past week. The firm expects to complete work by 2016.

"LEGO proportions are really the golden ratio of architecture," Bjark Ingels, the firm's founder, told Dezeen. "I think for testing ideas quickly it can be quite powerful."

And while your childhood creation may have been a bit smaller than the Denmark-based structure, it does employ elements, such as stacked rectangular volumes and modular brick motifs, that are a real LEGO lovers dream come true.

Check out the video above to see the planned creation, and cue the nostalgia.
