When constructed, the structure isn't big: the base measures 10" x 5" and its 4.5" high, but its quite complex (more complex than the sets I remember as a kid) and feels substantial when completed. There are well over 800 pieces and approximately 100 pages of instructions. The instruction book also includes a few short essays on Frank Lloyd Wright and Fallingwater. The assembly instructions are well done and putting it together took several hours but no confusion.
You can't tell by looking at it, but the structure is actually designed to come apart: the house is in several pieces that stack on top of each other and then slide into the base; this ability to do a blow-up diagram lets you examine some of the forms that were used in the structure. Of course, you can't expect this set to be a very precise reproduction of the actual landmark, but it definitely captures its essence.
The set uses only a handful of colors that seem inspired by the colors Wright would use in some of his sketches --it gives the completed piece a very mature look. Once it was done I placed it on a shelf next to various books on architecture and modern sculptures. This is a very substantial piece when fully constructed, and if it got your attention like it did mine, I think you'll be satisfied with it.
The building of the model was great fun, probably the most fun I had so far building one of these sets. If you are looking for four hours of entertainment from building, this set has you covered. It is really pleasing to look at once its completed. The booklet was sparse as far as information about the builing (for example Villa Savoye has MUCH more information) but I wouldn't consider that a huge negative unless you really want a lot of background for what you are building (in which case, I suggest purchasing a book about the building or doing some online research). All in all, it was amazing after the last brick was in place.
Value? Definately worth your investment if you want a Lego showpiece in your home and you can part with around $100.00 retail. I think Lego has brought me back into their world as an adult and I want more of these sets!Read more ›
