Product Description

Completed in 1910, Frederick C. Robie House in Chicago's affluent Hyde Park neighborhood is considered to be Frank Lloyd Wright's most accomplished Prairie-style work. This style is acknowledged as the first truly American style, and is characterized by dominating horizontal lines, banded rows of windows and spacious, open floor plans. F.C. Robie commissioned Wright to design a home that would provide beautiful vistas of the surrounding neighborhood, while maintaining privacy for his family. The final 9,062-square-foot design met the brief perfectly, combining a large window space to give an abundance of light, impressive views of the park and flowing interior spaces. This LEGO Architecture series interpretation of Robie House was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team.

Right off the bat, I might be a bit biased. I'm an AFOL. My girlfriend and I have all of the Architecture sets to date. I have purchased and loved the last 5 Modular Houses. You might want to keep these things in mind when reading this review.

Like everyone else, I also felt that the set was really expensive. I've never spent $200 for a lego set. The most I've spent was the $150 for the Modular Houses, and even that made me cringe a bit. They're so darned fun and detailed that I just can't help myself. From a price to piece standpoint, the set is still less than 10 cents per piece. That's still on par with 90% of the lego sets out there (certainly with the larger, licensed sets).

My girlfriend and I were fortunate enough to go to the unveiling of this set at the actual Robie House in Chicago. We didn't initially have plans to buy the set, but after seeing the actual house and comparing it to the set, we couldn't resist. There are soooo many little details that make this an amazing piece of art.

The set is about 16" wide and about 5" tall. Like all of the previous Architecture sets, it is completely solid. Also like the other Architecture sets, you don't just stack the bricks on top of each other. The pattern of the brick placement mimics the brick pattern of the actual house. This is why so many of the pieces are 1x2 plates. The real house's bricks are short and wide, and that kind of attention to detail makes this set so special. Could the set have been made with standard bricks, thus reducing the cost? Sure, but then this detail would have been completely missed.

Another great detail is that the base of the set is 3 layers deep (instead of the normal 2). The reason for this is to allow for a recessed "courtyard" in front of the house.

Lego is doing a great service to Adult Fans of Lego (AFOL) by taking a chance with the adult models, including the Architecture line of models. These, including the Robie House, Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling Water", and the new Brandenburg Gate, are not going to be hot sellers like, say Star Wars or Harry Potter. Lego has to amortize its engineering and development costs over a smaller number of sales than it can get for its sure things for the kids. So, it really needs to get its price from us.

The Robie House is beautiful. The Dark Red pieces are a great color, far removed from the toy-like primary colors of a standard lego set. When you get done, you have a model that is nearly a work of art. It looks great in the living room or, for that matter, on the corner of your desk at work. It is not as large or complex as the gorgeous Tower Bridge, but you also do not need 3 1/2 feet of your coffee table to display it. Also, I do not think you really could buy the pieces for Robie House on Brinklink and save money - just checked a couple of the main pieces, and you would have to order from more than one vender, with multiple postage fees, plus the nuisance of spending your time. Not worth it.

Models like the Robie House are meant for adults, and if adults do not appreciate them enough to buy them, they will go away, as anything else in business. I have a lot of lego models - Tower Bridge, Emporium, Medieval Village, FallingWater, Fire Station, even a 20" Lego Yoda looking over my home office. If you are limited in budget to just one really good Lego model, then do not get Robie House. Get Tower Bridge, for its awesomeness and value; or Medieval Village for its play value and price; or even Harry Potter's DiagonAlley, for its fun and cool looks. But, for a handsome demonstration model that looks great, fits in a lot of places, and will get adults to look at it, then Robie House is five stars for this reviewer.

This is now my fifth Architecture Lego set that I have completed. It was by far the most arduous to complete, but its appearance is the most pleasing as well. If you love the architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright, if you love architecture in general, and if you love buildings inspired by Japanese design, this piece will be for you. Putting it together requires a big enough surface area and enough time to devote to putting it together. For me, between breaks for eating and checking out the Patriots win, it took about nine hours.

Maybe I am slower than average, but I try to take my time and ensure I make no mistakes because a mistake on something like this can wreck havoc. Right now, though, now that I done, I feel inspired by its beauty. This was a Christmas gift for me and it's one of the best I have ever received. Seriously, despite the cost, get it - it will probably last you a lifetime and give whatever corner you put it into a little piece of perfect beauty.

I never thought that I'd enjoy Legos so much! I really enjoy these architectural sets. This is one BIG set, what, 1600 pieces. It costs only about 10 cents per lego piece, on par with other sets. this is so detailed, engaging, challenging (how you organize the pieces in order to assemble it and how you go about assembling it (left, right, whole ...)), and it's a great tool for bonding with co-assemblers (father - son). This is a lego set that, once it's assembled, probably ought to just be displayed somewhere. After investing the better part of a day and seeing the marvel of this work, you'll want to. If you think of moving it around much, I'd recommend gluing it in place, else you have to spend another 8 hours re-assembling it. Just in case, file the assembly directions. Frank Lloyd Wright did an incredible job in designing this house. If you are like me, you sort of feel scared to drop this kind of money on a lego set. Well, if you can make do, take the plunge and buy it. It is worth it! Don't buy this as your first architectural lego set. I give everything that I review a grade. This set is absolutely worth an "A+". I highly recommend it for purchase by lego enthusiasts, FLW fans, architecture buffs, etc.
