I was still at Microsoft when I saw my first LEGO Architecture model in a colleague’s cubicle. It was the Seattle Space Needle, a simple model but it captured the essence of the real structure. I loved it!
For a short time, my local Barnes & Nobel bookstore featured several sets in the Architecture series. The Empire State Building. The Willis Tower. The very impressive Fallingwater. To borrow from Dork Tower; “THEY MUST BE MINE!”
Each new release was acquired as quickly as possible. I have all of them now; the most recent being the Eiffel Tower.
Soon, I’ll have a special order from overseas – I am not sure if it will be available in North America. A model of the Marina Bay Sands resort in Singapore. I’ll post pictures of that one when I can.
Here are a few pictures of my current LEGO Architecture collection.
You can see most of the models here; alas, I did not photograph Fallingwater. That is probably my favourite of the bunch. Robie House (the red one on the top right) was the longest to build since it was made up primarily of the 1×1 and 2×1 flat pieces in order to simulate the brick facade.
