Tucker studied architecture at Kansas State University, graduating in 1996. He then went on to practice as a professional architect in Chicagoland for 10 years. His work attracted the attention of The LEGO Group and in 2007; he became a LEGO® Certified Professional. In 2008, he worked with the company to conceive and design the LEGO Architecture Series. Each set contains the pieces and instructions to build a model of a famous architectural building in microscale.
