There are two bridges (one typical, the other one much smaller), a “campanile”, and the Saint Marc Basilica. with interesting details. Regarding the bell tower, called “campanile” in Italy. Campaniles are tours which contain one or several bells separated from the church, there are dozens of it in Venice.

Then, from left to right, we can see the Reichstag building, the Victory Column, the Deutsche Bank tower, The television tower and the Brandenburg Gate. Lots of monuments for this city, a very good set to discover or re-discover Berlin city. I highly recommend this Lego Architecture set for all!

This is my favorite Lego Architecture set for 2016. The Buckingham Palace is very well represented, with lots and lots of details. The roof of the building cannot be opened, but it’s well designed. Moreover, this Lego Architecture set doesn’t replicate only the building, but also the fountain and the place and roads. It’s impressive! Just 2 bad points on this Lego Architecture set: the taxi and the bus, near to the fountain. They’re very small, made only with few plates bricks. Honestly, they’re not very nice, that’s why it would be preferable to remove them.

The Lego Architecture 21030 replicates the United States Capitol. The finished model is excellent, with big dimensions & lots of details. The instruction book also includes few pages about the building. Personally, I really like this set, which is highly detailed. It’s also possible to remove part of the roof to see statues inside, to replicate the “National Statuary Hall Collection”. The width of this building is 44.5 centimeter, with 16.5 cm high. It doesn’t look like impressive on the pictures, but when you have it in your hands or in your home, this Lego Architecture set is very impressive!

MONUMENT
• Burj Khalifa
PIECES

AGE RANGE

RETAIL PRICE

• Hard to find
AVAILABILITY

• To end of 2017

The Lego Architecture 21031 Burj Khalifa not a city scene like the previous sets, it’s just the tour which is very impressive with 39 centimeters high. There are no windows on the tour, sadly, but the style is recognizable. Personally, I think the gray color is not very adequate, a structure with gray parts and transparent bricks would have been more adequate.
