LEGO’s Tara Wike: Stacking Up—Designing for the builders of tomorrow
Tara will discuss how she went from MIT designing large-scale architectural projects to rural Denmark designing tiny accessories for LEGO minifigures, and how that journey brought her to champion a brand that develops a product well-known for inspiring kids to embrace their creativity.

Collaborating with colleagues from all over the world and across the company, she promotes quality design to defend the LEGO brand, recently voted by Forbes as the world’s most powerful brand. Tara attended the Massachusetts Institute of Technology School of Architecture and Planning.
