What is Building Beyond?

Building Beyond is a fun and educational LEGO® activity for all people aged 5 years old and up. Participants get to imagine –and build– their own distant futuristic descendants, while visual artist and creator Ekow Nimako shares critical insights on his sculptural work, the importance of Afrofuturism, and how LEGO® can be used to rebuild a more inclusive world for us all.

frequently asked questions

Please reach us at admin@ekownimako.com if you cannot find an answer to your question.

Unfortunately due to the possible choking hazard of small LEGO parts, our Vision Kit models are not recommended for children under 5 years old, as indicated on each resealable parts bag.

Sorry about that!  We take great care to ensure that each Vision Kit has the exact number of parts needed to complete each build, but sometimes errors are made. Here's what do if this should occur:  

  1. If you ordered under 9 Vision Kits and any parts are missing, please circle the missing part from the Parts List page of the booklet, clearly write the number of each part that is missing, then take a clear picture of page and email it to admin@ekownimako.com. We will have your replacement part(s) mailed out to you straight away.
  2. If you ordered an assorted variety pack, you will notice the order arrived with bags of colour-coordinated extra parts. The bags contain doubles of every part used to make each Legacy model so you just need to find the missing part and away you go!

We currently fulfill orders twice a week so depending on when you make your order it will be shipped accordingly. Once your order has shipped however you will receive a notification that it is on the way!

The variety packs include a random assortment of the 4 Vision Kits we currently have in production. Though we try not to have too many of any one model per pack just to keep things fun and fair.

Good Question! Sometimes specialty LEGO parts are hard to source so we decided to go with the 4 Legacies currently available since we know we can depend on the supply. We definitely plan to roll out more models down the line however, so please stay tuned for updates on Instagram @ekownimako.
