For Lego builders, this is the only model Lego makes that gives you a worthwhile amount of the Sand Green 1x1 slopes. These sell on the internet for about $.35 cents apiece, plus shipping. So, you are getting pretty good value in terms of the pieces.
I also liked the base, which makes the model look finished and even professional. One weakness is that the landscaping immediately around the gate appears unfinished, with the exposed lego studs unattended. The modeller might improve this with a handful of flat tiles, or a couple of dark green or brown round plates strategically placed. A couple of small additions could greatly improve the finished look of the model, like Lego did with FallingWater.
However, we thank Lego for making the price more reasonable than they have asked for some of the other minor architecture models. At $34.99 for 323 pieces, the model is back within the range of what is usually considered to be good Lego value. The desirable Sand Green pieces add to the value you get.
Note: His dad loved it, too.
Having interest in various architectural styles, I took my chances and purchased this rendition of the Brandenburg Gate in the Legos Architectural series. At first I found the instructions to be somewhat confusing but as I progressed I gained a rhythm of placement of the bricks. However, as I progressed toward the finish I noticed that my columns were misplaced and I had to deconstruct and back pedal to my pages of error. Upon looking at the instructions I could see why I made the mistake as the angle of the picture did not show on which notch of the brick I was to use. Looking at the next series of pictures I could see my error. However I was placing other bricks on other subassemblies at that time and was not concerned with what I had finished. In other words the horse was already out of the barn and I didn’t even notice it.
In deconstruction I learned a great deal and discovered that one must assess placement after each page to make sure that you’re on the right track. Keep your eyes on the finished project and make sure you are using the right bricks and the placement is correct. Rushing can instill errors down the road. Once constructed, I was pleased with what was built and is a fine miniature detail of an historical monument with much architectural appeal.Read more ›

This little set was an easy build. Took me maybe 45 minutes to build. It was my first Architecture series set that I built. Somewhat repetitive but thought it was overall fun. Read morePublished 2 months ago by T Holleman
Great for kids. Although this set claims to be for kids 12+, it only took my 10 year old half an hour to build. I wish it could be a little bit more complex than that.Published 3 months ago by J. Zhou
