Product Description

Product Description

LEGO Architecture Brandenburg Gate 21011

From the Manufacturer

Commissioned by King Frederick William II of Prussia as a sign of peace, the Brandenburg Gate has been one of Berlin's most important monuments for over 200 years - both as an architectural landmark and historic symbol. The grandest of a series of 18 gates circling the city, the Brandenburg Gate was constructed between 1788-1791 from the Propylaea-inspired designs of architect Carl Gotthard Langhans. This sandstone gate consists of twelve Doric columns that combine to form five passageways, topped by the imposing Johann Gottfried Schadow statue, Quadriga - a four-horse chariot ridden by Victoria, the Roman Goddess of victory. This LEGO Landmark series interpretation of the Brandenburg Gate was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team.

This is a pretty simple model that creates an ingenious model of the Brandenburg Gate, in Berlin. As with other models in the Architecture line, it is built on the micro scale, which means large features are just suggested by the legos that are used. As lego builders know, this is skillful and fully acceptable for lego models. It does, however, limit play value, if that is something you are looking for.

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.

Our adult son has become an architect and studied in Germany for a semester. We have purchased other buildings in this line for him which he has on his desk where he works. Legos are very important to us and him, because without a doubt,his childhood lego building led him to his successful career. What would Christmas be without at least one toy ? These are not really child toys for they are rather simple yet complex and I feel would not really capture a young child attention as well as some of the sets they have now on the market.

Note: His dad loved it, too.

This took my 13 year old son about 20 minutes to put together and, once assembled, it is quite nice looking. I think all these Lego Architecture sets are quite overpriced for what you get, but it seems most are willing to pay up for them.

Following the trend of the smaller Lego architecture sets, this is a simplistic model of the Brandenburg Gate. It is a nice piece if you are collecting the series, but overall, there isn't much to it, and I think this model could have benefited from a larger scale and more detail. Nice addition of the green roofing pieces.

Having been stationed in West Germany in the early 1970’s with the US Army, I had the privilege to travel to Berlin on three separate occasions from 1970 to 1971. On each of these occasions I had the chance to visit the Berlin Wall and even travelled into East Berlin where the Brandenburg Gate resided. Having been built in the late 18th century as one of eighteen gates surrounding Berlin, it was considered by all Germans as the gateway to Prussia.

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.

This lego is a lot of fun to put together and much easier than some of the other in the architecture series. There aren't nearly as many 1 by 1 pieces. Oddly though the jail bars used to make up the columns all around it were all the same with 4 studs on top except for one that only had 2 studs on top. In the directions it showed them all being the 2 stud kind. It didn't matter much structure wise. It's very solid and looks nice! It isn't listed as a part in the manual but the name plate brick comes in both English and German. I ended up putting both on mine.

You should know before you buy this that it is a small model. Perhaps it resembles its full scale counterpart, but not very much. Really, the only reasons i purchased this set are the sand green pieces, and its inclusion in the Architecture series. All in all, a pretty unremarkable model and can be built easily in under an hour. I built it twice and then relegated the pieces to my parts bins.
