A Note From the Authors
We loved playing with LEGO when we were kids, and like a lot of kids, we dreamed of becoming LEGO designers when we grew up. But also like most other kids, we put our LEGO bricks away in the attic when we reached our early teens. When we came back to LEGO as adults, we marveled at the things fans were building—the astounding models featured online. What really turned our heads, though, were the amazing minifig-scale buildings that LEGO had released. There was a wonderful community of builders trying to emulate the “modular building” style and improve upon it, too. We first fell in love with the Fire Brigade (set #10197). The rest, as they say, is history.
We’ve built dozens of models since buying our Fire Brigade; there’s just something irresistible about using little building blocks to create models that emulate architectural details, creating a whole miniature world. We wrote this book to share our passion. We hope you get lots of ideas for building your own models in these pages.
"Should be on the coffee table of every AFOL."
"Spectacular enough to keep LEGO maniacs on track."

I definitely recommend this book for any LEGO fan.
Also the instructions for some buildings and furniture is also a great inclusion. Definitely recommend this book for anyone who loves building with lego.
It really clearly displays how to build structures correctly and has lots and lots of brick-built things like furniture and lamp posts and such. He LOVED it.
Using information in this book, he built a hospital with three floors, a working elevator and surgical suite, waiting area, revolving doors and -- well -- who knows what else is in there.
If your Lego person is looking for brick-built ideas to expand a city -- this was a great one for us.
There's also a link to a website for the Brick Inventory you'll need to build the structures in the book.
I'd recommend it to anyone who builds Lego and who wants to learn more tricks/tips and techniques.
