Is there a more classic toy than a LEGO set? Much of my childhood was spent using the multicolored block sets to turn my imagination into reality. Back then, the majority of LEGO sets were pretty generic, but allowed you to build different vehicles and locations. But LEGO has definitely evolved over time, and now features sets inspired by TV shows, movies, and even video games.
The latest evolution is the LEGO Architecture Studio. With this set, anyone can express their construction, engineering, and architectural skills through LEGO Bricks. Considering the urge to creatively build doesn’t stop with childhood, this seems like a natural progression of the LEGO brand. This set includes 1210 bricks and even comes with a 272-page guidebook endorsed by leading architects. But what is gone are the various colored blocks, with the majority of the set being white or tan for both the Architect and Landmark series sets. There are colored pieces for windows and landscaping, but what is special about these sets are the new shapes needed for these buildings.
Right now, you can choose to build LEGO versions of the Sydney Opera House, Guggenheim Museum, Seattle Space Needle, and many other great buildings. Of course, you can let your creativity shine and create your own architectural work of art. So if you want to express both your inner child and your adult appreciation for architecture, pick up the LEGO Architecture Studio for around $150 or one of the Architect or Landmark series sets today.
