Light bluish grey plates form terracing around the edges; it’s interesting that several 2×2 plates are used instead of say more 2×12 plates, which have already been used in the base.

After seeing this latest set I not only want to go out and buy it, but also a lot of other ones instructiohs the line too.

Interestingly, from this point on, SNOT is achieved the ‘old-fashioned’ way, using Technnic bricks with half-pins, as seen in the inset. Selecting Le Corbusier was not a foregone conclusion. From the front, we can see how much the upper floor overhangs the lower, and there’s a delightful symmetry in the colonade of pillars flanking each side: Absent from my review copy of the box is the piece count and ‘Building Toy’ reminder of the first official box art we have seen, which presumably is the US version.


Note also the lack of windows on the right-hand side, which allow movement of air onto the terraced area.

Anything that isn’t tiled here will be covered up When looking at the pictures I was surprised to see that they add a bit of interior detailing, only to cover it up with a non-removable roof. Presumably these are used to give the appearance of flagstones. You’d be forgiven for expecting a whiff of a large quantity of Billund Kladno Air when you open the box, but it is surprisingly full:. Any one of these would make a great kit and have more than enough historical notes and trivia to fill out the usual architecture collectors instruction book.

The rear shows the model from a higher perspective; in the bottom right there’s a small inset of the real building:.

I appreciate that Lego offers various models and makes their fans discover existing buildings. I’ve seen a few MOCs that really look great. And I confess to never having heard of it before, which I thought initially made it a strange choice for an set which intends to showcase prominent French architecture; there are plenty of more famous choices, classical Louvre, for example or modernist Pompidou Centre.

Like CopMike said, this info makes the set much more interesting. Posted September 1, I had to look up the building also because I didn’t know anything about it. However, we now know that the mysterious sixth language is Hungarian. But you can see how well the curved roof and long, shallow-inclined ramp is recreated in LEGO. From the official LEGO press release:. Now we move upstairs.

Posted January 1, edited. Now I just have to wait impatiently while it’s shipped to my door Note here the 2×2 tile next to the 2×2 inverted slope the inclusion of which I can’t really explainand the 1×1 round brick just to the rear. Unless, that is, you are anal about lining them up correctly. More pictures on my flick r.

The base itself consists of large black plates, arranged in two rows: With a good selection of dark green parts, this might be useful as a parts pack; however, the majority are common pieces and the inflated price of the Architecture line reduces its appeal for parts alone. There isn’t that much repetition, and the fiddly placement of tiles is mercifully kept to a minimum.

The main windows consist almost entirely of stacked trans-clear plates; it is less laborious that in might look. The plate-sandwich construction seems always to bow upwards at the edges; this seems to be a problem inherent in the LEGO plates themselves, and persisted no villw how careful I was during construction.

Rufus bought the set this morning at my local lego store. Quite why the left side has red plates and the right side blue is unclear. Or I might just have savkye the picture from Google Earth. Not only is it not far off the dimensions of that of the 2,piece Robie Housethe box is also surprisingly heavy, weighing in at 1. Eight polybags and two loose plates fall are carefully removed from the box:. Well there you go: The set designer might have been better using three of these pieces instead of the round brick.

From this angle, the curvy roof wall thingy almost looks like a sail.
