LEGO artist Adam Reed Tucker has unveiled a model of Taliesin West, the largest LEGO model of any Frank Lloyd Wright building.

According to ArchDaily, Tucker was supported by a team of children to rebuild Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home in Scottsdale, Ariz. The LEGO model is on display in the Pavilion at Taliesin West, which is now home to the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture.

To finish a model of the campus and its Sonoran desert landscape, ArchDaily reports that Tucker spent “40 hours researching and studying the project, 120 hours designing, and 260 hours constructing the final model." A total of 180,000 standard LEGO parts were used to make this eight-by-four-foot model.

The model will be on display until the end of April, when it will go on tour.
