Vote For The Next Architecture Set

Postby Staff » Tue Nov 29, 2011 3:20 pm





Are you tired of tiny Architecture sets? Did you laugh out loud at 21008 Burj Khalifa set? Maybe you can change that. LEGO.com, on their Architecture microsite, is asking for your opinion on what you want to see as the next Architecture set. Unfortunately, there's no way to express your opinion on what scale the model should be; we can only hope that 21010 Robie House is the first in a series of larger, more detailed, higher piece count sets. 'Cause I'd hate to see how the Roman Colosseum would look at 100 pieces and a $20 dollar price point.

Yeah, scale matters a lot. I refuse to vote for a skyscraper because I don't trust them to do it in anything other than minimal detail. I'm afraid that a small scale Habitat 67 would just be a random bunch of 2x2 bricks, too.

Are you issuing a 100-piece Roman Coliseum Challenge?

I would love to see a larger scale Colosseum or a US Capitol Bldg. I did also vote for 30 St. Mary Axe, as it is one of my favorite buildings in the world, and also to see if it can be recreated faithfully in LEGO. I have been trying for years (in my mind) how 30 St. Mary Axe could even be recreated in Lego.

Habitat 67 on the other hand, I was surprised it had the most votes by a long shot. I can build one using a bunch of leftover 2x4 bricks and stacking them in an overlapping, haphazard fashion.

We need some serious modern stuff here... The world is full of brilliant examples and concepts like the "rotating tower', I think it would be nice to have an ARC series (2) two, which would main focus on conception creations. I think this would open up the series to a whole new level!

Regarding the Roman Coliseum, while it looks probably like something most would go for, and the little figures would suit it nicely if it where big enough?
I think something a bit smaller would be more what Lego had in mind, though I could be wrong?
I also like the idea of something more modern, as lately the wow factor has been limited on these models.

Listed below is a few that might make the cut;

Sydney Opera house.
The space needle Restaurant.
Big Ben.
Leaning tower.
Jefferson monument.
Lincoln Memorial Statue.
leaning tower of pisa.
Chartres cathedral stained glass Rose window. (How's that for a challenge?)

I think Lego should make a set for a country. In this way they could pleased each country via an architectural set that every one could be prood.
As far as I'm concerned, I really think that "habitat 67" could be an interesting idea but I can't imagine it whithout snot.

It's funny, I've just finished an architectural set : Museum Aan de Stroom

Hmm - how about the CN Tower in Toronto? I would vote for that!

A nice cathedral, in a larger scale, would be really nice though. Think Taj Mahal scale.
