This Architecture set from Lego is easy to build, very portable, and a nice piece for any architects on your gift list.

At 240 pieces, this is a small set---about 4x4 inches on the base when assembled. This makes it quite portable for "show-and-tell" at a child's school, or for taking to the office for display on your desk. It's a pretty sturdy build, so no worries about small pieces breaking off in transit or in play. It's an easy set to assemble, should take less than 30 minutes even for a novice builder.

NOTE: there are not any "specialty" pieces in this set (aside from the printed flats that say Rockefeller Center). So those of you with extensive collections could build this easily from your existing Lego pieces. The instructions can be downloaded from Lego.com for free.

The sight of the black box (and the price) ought to tell any adult that this isn't really a toy for kids. With only 240 pieces it's obviously easy to build and once completed I don't expect to take mine apart. I bought it in the Lego shop at the Rockefeller Center for reasonable price but I feel the existing price is perhaps poor value and I think it would well be worth searching the net for a good deal.

Raymond Hood's masterpiece unfortunately gets reduced to a 3.75 by 4 inch oblong and because of this I've given the model four stars: it really should have been a bit larger, say by half as much again. I don't think the other buildings in the series are in the same proportion either.

As another reviewer says, it doesn't look like Lego because none of the round studs are visible. The black base with the ochre buildings and grey sidewalks work well, oddly I had two small pieces missing but calling the toll-free number sorted that out and they arrived soon enough, free, too. The sixty page instruction booklet has thirteen of them devoted to the history and building of the Center.

I like my model, a super reminder of one of the world's great architectural achievements...if only it was a bit larger.

As a Lego Architecture collector and have 17 models out of the 21 in the range, this model was certainly a great build.
No one of the most challenging to put together but the actual finished product looks fantastic!
Love the way the Lego tile bricks slot together bringing the smooth finish of the building and making it resemble the real building.
The Box and comprehensive instructions are great quality as well as the great facts about the real building. Love it!
Amazon delivered quickly and safely. Thank you!

Lego has lately expanding their business to not only children-oriented product

the architecture is one of the calling card of lego nowadays (there are more than enough wonderful architectures in the world to be replicated by lego!!)

I am very happy to get this set at 16 pounds, while usually it stands around 30!

I gave been to the Rockerfella centre and this Lego set could have been a lot better. It has the shape but not the detail like other pieces of this set have. Can get confusing with some of the pieces as most look the same

Its ok, a bit bland in colour. A bit sorry I bought it. Bought the White House last year, much nicer finish. Would've returned it but they wanted nearly another 10 to exchange it.
