Product Description

Product Description

Few one-room homes are as strikingly modern and instantly recognizable as the Farnsworth House, designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe. This single-story steel structure with floor-to-ceiling glass walls was meant to open a minimalist interior to nature in an extreme way. Construction took place from 1945-1951 on a 60-acre estate beside the Fox River in Plano, Illinois, where it still stands today as an iconic masterpiece of the International Style of architecture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lego doing what Lego does best - buildings 4 Feb 2012
By Nick D.
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am a great fan of modern architecture and an equally avid supporter of Lego, so, when I saw this new architecture series from Lego, I was immediately hooked.

This isn't a difficult building to construct, nor is it too simple. What my daughter and I liked about it was that it revealed the cleverness of the design of the real Farnsworth House on which it is based as well as the cleverness of the Lego designer who translated its many features into a miniature model.

I thought it was a bit expensive for what it was, but it has become one of my favourite Lego models. In many ways, Lego's architecture series is a welcome return to Lego's roots - buildings. It makes you appreciate what an incredibly clever and flexible building system Lego is. The result is a thing of beauty that can be satisfyingly displayed.

I look forward to other models in this range very much. Thank you Lego.
