Product Description

From the Manufacturer

Replicate a modern marvel with the famed Farnsworth House™! 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. The assembled Farnsworth House model is over 10” (25cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and history.

This particular model isn't your every day Lego set. Each piece in the series (I have others) is designed in part by an actual architect, and while the set is seemingly "easy" to put together, it still wields a delightfully rewarding result; it is fun and requires the regular Lego step-taking manual in order to finish the product; this trains adults and youngsters alike to chip away at the "puzzle" with patience and prioritization, with a great payoff.

I am an Architecture student, and a few remaining models are DEFINITELY going on my Christmas list; I wouldn't necessarily purchase this for a young child; it adds value to the purpose of the set if the child actually understands what he/she is building. The set does come with a detail on its actual counterpart, but once finished, is not intended to be dismantled; its a Lego set, and like most of them, it will come apart, if mishandled or dropped. It is great fun and time consuming; however, rather than a child, I would recommend this more for an adult, teen, student, or collector.

Having put together Fallingwater, the Guggenheim, and the Brandenburg Gate, I was very excited to put together the Farnsworth House. I have long been a fan of Mies van der Rohe's architecture, reading up on his work, and living by his thoughts that 'less is more'. So when this came out, I was very happen to be given it as a present. All in all, putting it together was more complicated than putting together Fallingwater. But the instructions were clear. And as always, there were nice tidbits of information along the way. I have put this on a windowsill and it looks great there. Seriously, the piece is a beautiful reproduction of the house and is not as small as the Guggenheim or Brandenburg Gate. Pick it up; you won't be disappointed.

I've always been interested in architecture and design. I stumbled across the LEGO Farnsworth House while doing some online browsing.

I wasn't sure what to expect but I haven't had so much simple fun in a very long time. I thought twice, then a third time, about spending this kind of money for a "toy" but it has been well worth it.

I would imagine that any intelligent seven or eight year old with an interest in or eye for design and construction, and with the close and continuing supervision of an adult, would enjoy (perhaps in small doses) assembling the house.

Go for it!

The Lego Farnsworth house is an excellent kit if you enjoy the architectural type models that Lego has been producing. It is a bit different than the other models in the series in that the scale is a a bit bigger, which allows you to see the interior of the model, which is a nice change. The kit is well designed and I believe captures the essence of the real thing better than any of the other architectural kits so far. An excellent job was done designing the house to feel like it is floating. I have liked the Farnsworth house since the first time I saw it, and the model does it justice. Not much playability to it, but if you're buying these sets because you like architecture, and legos, you aren't looking to build anything else with the pieces anyway.

The build is pretty straight forward, just two points to note: despite the number of pieces listed on the box, about 150 of them are 1x1 flats to capture the deck, patio, and interior flooring. This does make it a bit tricky getting them all looking straight. The kit is simpler than the number of pieces might suggest. My only negative on this kit is the base which it sits on. Rather than a single base plate, it is a series of 12 6x10's which are connected together underneath. This leaves the base feeling a bit unstable and I wish it were a single flat plate.

All in all, a great kit.

This kit is available on the LEGO site for under 60 dollars. Private sellers often inflate prices to twenty dollars or more over retail. Be sure to shop around before paying the high prices of resellers.

This kit is fun for anyone who enjoys mid century modern architecture. A short build and a very small model, perfect for your desk or bookshelf. The original Mies house is simple and only one room, around 1500 sq feet. The model reflects this design and even includes tiny furniture. Get it for a decent price and you will be happy with this kit.

I was given the Robie House Lego Architecture as a gift, and was hooked. So I bought this set, and had it assembled in about an hour. It is significantly easier than the Robie, but just as gratifying. As an Architectural Designer, this is nice to be able to come home and build, without straining your brain.

My boys probably have about 50,000 Lego pieces between the three of them. Every year for Christmas/birthdays they ask for a few Lego sets, and I sit watching them build them wishing I had a piece of the action. Around Christmas last year, I decided to get myself a little something and put together a set since I was being tired of being left out of the fun. This is a nice set that looks very clean when finished; the accompanying literature about the history of the house is an interesting read. It's obviously not a set that you'll play with when finished; though my boys have now hijacked it to use as a base of operations for their Lego stormtroopers. Looks like a Hoth building, I guess.
