All of the wonderful kits within the Lego Architecture range are based on iconic buildings. Well-known architects including Frank Lloyd Wright have had their full-scale masterpieces reduced in size and they have been recreated, as realistically as possible, to resemble the original buildings.
Some of these models have relatively small numbers of pieces which will allow younger Lego enthusiasts the opportunity of building a well-known building; for instance the Seattle Space Needle which only has 57 pieces or the Guggenheim Museum which has a total of 208 pieces. At the other end of the scale the intricate detail in the terrific Robie House with its 2276 pieces fully justifies the acclaim given to the architect in the original property.
All of the buildings within the Lego Architecture category have been chosen for different reasons, but all of the original properties have exceptional engineering skill. The Lego models have been reduced in size whilst retaining the integrity and spirit of the original architecture.
