The LEGO House in Billund, Denmark, has been closed since March due to the ongoing pandemic. In an initiave to show fans who are unable to visit what is in the House, Stuart Harris the LEGO House Master Builder is conducting a series of video interviews of the international AFOLs who currently have their work on display in the Masterpiece Gallery.
