CHOKING HAZARD -- Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.
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.

To Adam Reed Tucker; designer/artist and his team: I salute you. This set should indicate to you, the builder, the amount of design and production skills employed to achieve a truly remarkable interaction of parts to form an outstanding piece of "art'. Take the time as you proceed to really appreciate the work, thought (and FLW's genius) that has gone into the LEGO Robie House.
To Amazon; ordered on 1/1/2013 and received on 1/5/2013 in perfect condition.
Considering the media of LEGO, the scale and attention to detail is remarkable. The precision of parts fit is perfect. I had no desire or intent to race to completion...,just enjoyed the journey. The two doors alone required 76 parts.
Contrary to some opinions, yes it is up there in price.., but it is still in line with other LEGO sets per piece price which seems to run about 7-12 cents a part. Let's not lose sight of the other aspects involved such as:
1.Initial design costs, dies, materials, producton, packaging, great instruction booklet, etc.
The Robie House shows off FLW's stature as a truly great visionary. Having been in the Architectural profession for 47 years, prior to retiring 4 years ago, I have appreciated every second of the building process.
The set was complete and I had maybe two unneeded minor parts left when finished, pretty good out of 2276 total.
I could find no fault with this purchase and am hoping that the LEGO design team will consider Taliesin as their next project....,please?
The 3 primary things that prompted me to purchase this were; FLW, the amount of parts challenge and other purchaser reviews.
Three battery operated tealights have set it off perfectly to give the glow thru the windows.
Happy (early) Birthday to me from my wife! Thank you dear!
1/16/2013 FOOTNOTE: Meanwhile.., 4 days later, I have taken it apart and am building it again. Fun is fun.
I assembled the house over the course of a week, working for an hour or two each evening. It was loads of fun to put together. There was a sort of zen quality to building the walls one layer of bricks at a time. The finished house, though more an abstraction than a scale model, does a great job of capturing the feel of Wright's Prairie masterpiece. As other reviewers have noted, the attention to detail is impressive; everything from the sunken courtyard to the numerous windows to the circle-in-a-square planters shows just how much care went into the design of this set. Now I have it on display alongside Fallingwater in my home office and it looks great.
If you are a Wright enthusiast like me, and especially if you have visited the Robie House in person, I would definitely reccommend this Lego set.
Some reviewers have noted they were missing pieces; I had the opposite experience, having some excess pieces left over when the house was finished. Better too many than too few, I guess.
While the Robie House is most definitely an interesting build, because of the high number of small bricks it becomes monotonous to put everything together. That coupled with the sometimes unclear booklet cause this set to become overly complicated at times, and slows down the build when trying to determine where the next piece goes.
Once completed, this set looks really nice and is an excellent display piece. I personally enjoyed building Fallingwater more because I found the Architecture to be more interesting.
The only complaint I have is with the base design. It uses many smaller 6x12 plates and longer 2x12 trusses to create a larger base. The pressure on some of these plates from the overlying assembly is not evenly distributed. This causes a distortion of the wall as it crosses the driveway. Also the roof doesn't rest flat and there is a small gap between it and the wall.
