No matter your age, Lego is cool. And sure, anybody can follow instructions to make an awesome model of an X-Wing or the White House, but true masters of the art can create awesome stuff from scratch.

Big Lego fan expo BrickUniverse returns to D-FW (this time to Fair Park) this weekend

A lot of cool, creative stuff will be on display at the BrickUniverse convention this year (and we saw some cool stuff last year, too), but four models in particular will be of interest to those of us who live -- or have lived -- in Dallas: Iconic Dallas-area landmarks.

Seriously, I have trouble building a bland, cube house when I don't have instructions to work from. There's no way I would be clever enough to create the round top of AT&T Stadium.

Quote from the artist: "My fiftieth model, and one of the most geometrically complex skyscrapers I have ever modeled. I.M. Pei is one of my favorite architects, so it was great to finally get the chance to model one of his works at my scale (1:650)."
