There are few structures in the United States with the history and reverence of The White House, designed by James Hoban. On July 16, 1792, President George Washington chose this James Hoban design from six competing designs from renowned architects. This six-story Sandstone structure was meant to command respect for the nation from citizens and foreign visitors. Construction took place from 1792 - 1800 and it was rebuilt by Hoban following the fire of 1814. The assembled White House model stands 8.8" (22.4cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.

  • Architectural replica of the real-world White House
  • Booklet included with details on design and history (English language only)
  • Measures 3.9" (10cm) tall, 8.8" (22.4cm) wide and 5.6" (14.4cm) deep
The White House is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 2107.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Frustrating at times Previously built the Architecture Eiffel Tower and the Architecture Big Ben sets. I purchased this one as I liked the look of it. I built this after building the new Big Ben (10253) set, and the White House felt like such an inferior build. With hindsight, it would have been advisable to build the White House first. I had a few problems with the set coming apart. Some parts were only secure at the end of the build, once the roof and balcony railings had been put on. This has not put me off the Architecture sets, as I'm waiting for the 2 new sets that are being released later this year. The white flag looks pathetic, and a printed tile with the US flag would have looked so much better. Does the White House ever fly a white flag? In addition, instead of the green bricks, a few small trees/bushes would have improved the look of the front of the set. There is no playability with the set as it is designed for display purposes. Mine is now dismantled back in it's box, ready to be built again at some point.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This set is amazing It took less than an hour to build and was a lot of fun watching it come together. It has the detail of the Fallingwater set at half the price. It looks very nice on display, I have it on my file cabinet at my office. People recognize it right away as the White House. At a per brick price of under 9 cents, this architecture set is priced way below some of the others...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of character! This was actually my first set from the Architecture series but I held off on building it (I built the Farnsworth House first). The detail of this set was magnificent and the building techniques were pretty clever in depicting the White House's character. There was one point where I was assembling a pretty abstract portion of the house and after a few steps I admired the Lego designer's building methods because I would've never thought of that! This actually took about an hour and a half taking my time and I actually made a few mistakes miscounting the correct location of a stud or a brick but those mistakes were easily spotted once the pieces start fighting each other. This was a VERY fun build and awesome display. Highly recommend this set in this price range.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it!! A big help from my son :) and a little from my daughter ;) we build The White House. It is awesome!! Enjoyed building and it looks incredible!! I do not like the flag it would be look better with the US flag. Detailed and looks beautiful. Small pieces was hard for my little one but a help from me didn't ruined her love for Lego. Didn't take too much time to build. We love it!!!
