Graceland! I'd buy a couple dozen sets!

Eric

No official Robie House set is available. Hopefully someday soon!

P. Mulay

I've seen Robie House lego sets. But no results online to buy one. Any ideas where to purchase?

Norman Rogers

Okay, well, I have to have that. If Lego were to do more of this kind of thing, they could really do some serious business.

Brett P.

I think what lego should have done is make these models HUGE and more detailed. architects love details and concept. Im glad that lego has finally noticed that and took action but they are just too small and too simple.

Aime Rizzuto

I think the Martin Complex would be amazing! I can't wait to collect them all.

I would love to see Robie House for it's centennial this year. It is completely selfish as my son is starting a two year school project on the house and hewas going to deign his own lego version. This would be a real gift!

I suggested this very concept in 1990-91 while working for the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Heritage Tourism Program. The 49 Frank Lloyd Wright buildings in Wisconsin were included in the Trust's pilot project. I am astonished to see that it has come to fruition!! I said in my report at the time that I thought this would have great appeal, and hoped that this might generate some dollars for maintenance and restoration of both Taliesen and Taliesen West.
What I would like to see are sets from some of the extraordinarily futuristic projects which were never developed. Also, sets from projects that have since been destroyed, like the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.
Legos has a tradition of smaller, complimentary sets. I think the Peterson Cottage would fit this category and would be less expensive to produce and could be a "starter set".

they might go as far as to showcase intire cities ( New York, Sanfrancisco ,Chicago , London , Paris, Hong Kong, Warsaw, and Toronto

Alexander

if you grew up with lego then you know that these 6 sets are just the begining. there are rumbelings in the design department that the next series will focus on six other iconic buildings and monuments. the patronas towers, citi corp building, and a Phillip Johnson series would or is likely to follow if this one does well.

dan g.

Oh, I'd get the Robie House in a heartbeat.

Mike

How about the Martin House!!!

Sydney Head

Next Le Corbusier: la Ville Savoie and Ronchamp! Please, please! Can't wait to ge my hands on the Fallingwater set. Have you guys thought about getting subscriptions for those sets and upcoming ones?

Christian Huygen

The combination of Lego and architectural masterpieces makes me dizzy with joy.

Go to Lego.com and check out their Taj Mahal set, which I believe is the largest Lego set that's ever been marketed. I have no idea whether it's selling well. If it is, that could open up a market for larger and more detailed architectural wonders.

But you can already custom design your own Lego sets. Lego makes it possible to purchase the exact bricks and pieces that anybody wants, and they *give away* software so you can design your creations in 3D and then, if you want to, buy the parts to make them real. In other words, anyone can have all the fun that a product designer gets to have. You can even share the designs you've created.

There are many sites where people post their original Lego creations. It sounds like a lot of smart inspired people have been posting on this forum... I can't wait to see what you guys come up with.

I heard the robie house will be available in the fall.

iREV

This is ironic. Work just celebrated my bday by giveing me the Lego Architecture Space Needle yesterday. This is a fun Lego experence.

sush grl

last year i went to FAO schwartz to look for architectual legos and all they had were starwars! i'm so excited about the lego company finaly coming to their sences, it's like a dream come true!

I think the "Architecture" sets are meant for adults as a desktop tchotchkes, hence their mini stature. Build it, set on desk, never touch it again. I, too, was disappointed in their lack of detail, but they are what they are.

Cody

Plain and simple...

OMG! WANT!!!!

Sorry, but I'm Dutch and I love Rietveld

Yet another reason why Lego was chosen as "The Toy of the Millennium."

While some may think the real "fun" was had by the set designers (and there is some truth to this) it is best not to underestimate the creativity of kids. Once they have built these they could well look at their Death Star or Bat Cave and consider a "make over" for them.

Imagine the Death Star as designed by Frank Lloyd Wright... Now that would be a sight.

Tony Martini

I want these!!! Mommy, mommy...I WANT THESE!!!! Waaaaaaaaa.

Camila

It is easy for Lego to do it with Modern movement architecture XD

William Sutton

Mmm...can’t tell you whether I'm pumped or having flashbacks of childhood when father would inevitably step on the Lego while walking through the house at night (the scream would rouse the neighbors).

Makes for great opp to educate the family on America's greatest architecture.

[shameless plug: architectural wood trim? thousand of choices...online.]
