About Wingspread:

"Wingspread" is a house built in Wind Point, Wisconsin by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1938-1939 for Herbert F. Johnson of S.C. Johnson & Son, Inc. In 1961, it was dedicated to The Johnson Foundation to use as a conference center. The Johnson Foundation also provides free tours of the building.



About Me:

My name is Jameson Gagnepain. I'm an Adult Fan Of LEGO (AFOL) living in Kenosha, Wisconsin with my beautiful wife and daughter. LEGO has long been a passion of mine. I attend the BrickWorld convention in Chicago, IL every year, and I do many regular shows with KLUG (Kenosha LEGO Users Group). While I have many interests in LEGO, highest among them are architecture and mechanical structures.

About My Model:

In 2012, after finishing my model of Frank Lloyd Wright's "Thomas P. Hardy House", I wanted to build another Frank Lloyd Wright house. I ended up deciding on Wingspread, which I consider to be one of Frank Lloyd Wright's greatest works. When it is finished, my LEGO Wingspread will be 5 foot by 5 foot (192 studs by 192 studs), and likely around 40,000 pieces. The scale works out to roughly four real brick lengths for every 3 LEGO studs. The LEGO "Dark Orange" color in the model is mostly 1x2 plates - I procured 12,000 of them for use in this project!

  1. Distortion and moulded in stress might happen in moulded parts as a result of} molecular chain orientation. As the polymer is forced along Sweater Dresses for Girls small channels or cross sections, the molecular chains turn into aligned and stretched. As the polymer cools, the molecules attempt to chill out to their most well-liked coiled state. As the cooling process is mostly fast, the prolonged molecular chains turn into 'frozen' in their uncoiled state.
