Lego philosophy is not that different from a 3D-H philosophy philosophically speaking :))
from the point of view of using architectural repetitive module to create a covering surface,a repetitive masonry blocks,bricks or whatever is not that different in the modular "logic" from the repetitive bamboo sticks or the 3D-H
spatially speaking there could be differences, building blocks can obey
the monopoly of orthogonality,but steel structures ,reinforced concrete and mud-brick architecture can offer some good spatial examples beyond orthogonality,bamboo structures and scout pioneering ,nomads tents and eskimo snow domes(igloo),ancient scandanavian log houses...etc offer also some interesting spatial examples with affordable natural materials which is also beyond the monopoly of orthogonality,but the vast majority of contemporary people classify these technologies as "barbarously primitive" suitable for barbarians,and in some "civilized" worst case scenario as a futuristic nuclear holocaust,the few lucky survivors can make some benefit from these primitive technics once again!
