Bought for my daughter for Christmas. Arrived promptly and was totally as described. She is too old for conventional Lego but loves the challenge of the smaller pieces and the architectural details.

Another great entry in the Lego Architecture series, this model has given me a new appreciation of the United Nations Headquarters. The model's footprint is about the size of half a sheet of notebook paper, perfectly sized for viewing and displaying. This set will probably appeal most to the adult Lego enthusiasts, but anyone who appreciates design and architecture will also enjoy it. The 119-page booklet has wonderful details about the history and design of the complex, along with the usual instructions for the build.

Pieces are not in numbered bags, so it's best to do least a little bit of sorting before you get started. The set took me about an hour to assemble and, aside from the tower section, was not as repetitive a build as some of the other Architecture models. The design incorporates some unique methods for creating the different surfaces and building details, it's not just bricks snapped on top of bricks. The translucent blue tiles and turquoise plates that make up the Secretariat Building give the finished model a unique and beautiful modern look.

I will say that this model is composed of lots of little pieces; builders with large hands/fingers or long fingernails might find certain bits a challenge! The model is rated for ages 12+ but I feel sure that younger kids could accomplish this build, especially if they have any Lego experience at all.

Good model to build and looks great on a window sill as the translucent blocks let the light through.

This looks really good when built.
The good news is that it was challenging enough to keep my 13 year old daughter busy for a number of hours. (Many other reasonably priced lego sets can be completed in next to no time, so that's a big Lego deciding factor in our house.)

This was purchased as a present for a 10 year old who loves watching Grand Designs. Was very pleased and found it easy to build.
