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.
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 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 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.

We had fun putting this together and I am a big fan of the architect. I do wish it would have been bigger though, even if just a bit.Published 11 months ago by bobby
This is the only LEGO Architecture series I've tried so far ... and it's such great fun to build. A perfect 3-D puzzle for a wet weekend. If only they didn't cost quite so much ... Read morePublished 12 months ago by D. Hope
