I mean, how much fun can a guy with no architectural knowledge or creativity possibly have with box full of lego blocks? Still, I set my doubts aside just for the sake of trying, found a picture of a building I wanted to build as practice, and then I was pleasantly surprised how fun and satisfying building process was. In about half an hour, I was able to finish the N Tower in Seoul, Korea. With lot more pieces still laying around in the box, I started to create one building after another, and soon a small town sized landscape was created. It was pure fun and satisfaction. This set is consist of generous amount of white pieces and clear pieces. By having no colors, I find it easier to build buildings and structures without the distraction of colors. This way I felt that I could focus purely on the structure itself, as if I was molding a shape out of white clay back in elementary school. With many different shapes to play with, I was able to create any structures I've envisioned without difficulties. One thing I'm surprised at is this set does not include some of common and useful pieces like cone shapes or long antenna pieces for buildings. I had to steal an antenna piece from poor Willis Tower to finish my building... It comes with a pretty artsy book about architecture but I personally feel the book doesn't do a good job engaging us lego readers to make connections with lego and architecture. Sure, they do throw some examples of lego builds that covers each architectural concepts but I personally feel this book made for lego should have lot more fun exercise for us to follow and experiment with. Almost like a work shop environment rather than this textbook for Concept and Principles of Architecture 101 class we are given here with this set. Simply more doing than reading seems more fitting for lego sets personally. Overall, this is a fun, build your own ideas sandbox set with so many possibilities at your fingertips. Given the fact it has no colors, fun minifigures, or building instructions, one might say this set is better suited for older age groups. Pieces are also better for making structures than race cars, airplanes, etc. This set is not gonna be for every lego fans, but for anyone who enjoys making buildings out of legos, this will be a set you might have a blast making making buildings of your own.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuild Time: 30+ daysBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?45

- about 1 month agorating.prefix4rating.postfixPleasantly SurprisedBarberSam13 | 19-24I would recommend this to a friend!Purchased for: SelfI had been aware of this set for quite a while and was never really too fussed about getting it as I thought it was quite pricey for a box of white bricks, and there were other sets at the time which I wanted. However I did some research into it and I saw that you get so many different types of bricks in this set which are mainly all white with some transparent bricks aswell. You also get a lovely book which at first I thought it gave you some ideas and examples of things which you can build, and that's true to an extent where it gives you little work shop building exercises throughout, however the main bulk of the book is almost like an architects course you would get if you were attending college, it gives you so much information on how Architecture works, the techniques used and all the different stages when buildings are designed and built, something else which is really nice is that it has real Architecture companies which have got involved in the writing of this book, and when I say book I mean book, this isn't just your usual instructions manual you usually get with Lego sets, this is the sort of book which is so nice it could easily be sold In a bookshop and make a nice present for someone. As for the set itself I was pleasantly surprised, you get some sorting trays to separate all your bricks and keep them in order which I think is a nice touch. If you're someone who wants to follow instructions and build something specific then this probably isn't for you, however if you are looking to be creative and really use your imagination to build something unique then this is a brilliant set, I bought this because I wanted to start making my own builds and this is perfect for that, I think if you are the creative type then this will be great fun for you, it's nice to have all the bricks in white aswell so you can focus on the actual design and shape without colour getting in the way. I also think it's good value for money because it's the sort of set which is never really finished, you can do whatever you like with it. So I would definitely recommend this to people who want to use their imagination and creativity as this has all you need to do that, you also get a lovely book with this set which is a great thing to have for Lego and architecture fans.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuilding Experience: Expert LEGO builderWas this helpful?45
- 3 months agorating.prefix5rating.postfixClose to GreatOsedax | 35-44I would recommend this to a friend!I picked this set up at B&N. It's worth the purchase for any fan of architecture or design. The massive book that comes with it is not an instruction book, but rather an introduction to architectural thought and design. It's concepts make the set worth the purchase alone. There is a good variety of pieces, but omissions such as antennas and cones and other like pieces is baffling; as is the inclusion of images on the box that, while impressive, require a disclaimer that says you can't build the LEGO structures shown with the pieces inside. The other odd omission is a piece separator. Of all the sets that need this, the architecture sets are at the top of the list. I have one I can use, but why it isn't included is a mystery to me. The other odd thing is the interior packing. The is one large cardboard tray, two small cardboard trays, and two plastic trays with sub compartments. These are great to have, but they fit very awkwardly in the box and it doesn't take much to see how that could be better. It would also have been nice to have two additional plastic trays. There was the potential here for a really good portable package design, but the execution fails to match the potential -- especially for those who would want to keep this set together in it's box. I might do this, but it will be almost the only set (out of dozens) that I treat this way. I wanted to be an architect as a kid and this set has renewed that dream.Play Experiencerating.prefix5rating.postfixLevel of Difficultyrating.prefix3rating.postfixValue for Moneyrating.prefix4rating.postfixBuilding Experience: Advanced LEGO builderWas this helpful?55
