The LEGO Architecture does it Wright

You can read the whole press release here or just the highlight:

The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation announced today that The LEGO Group is now the exclusive licensed manufacturer of Frank Lloyd Wright Collection® LEGO Architecture sets.

The LEGO Group and Adam Reed Tucker of Brickstructures, Inc. officially introduced the LEGO Architecture line in 2008. The line currently consists of six buildings – now including two of Frank Lloyd Wright’s most famous and recognizable buildings, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum and “Fallingwater.”

After seeing this on Brothers Brick I just had to put my two cents in. To be honest, I’m not really into the LEGO Architecture line. The main reason is the price. At $20 each, the original four buildings are all way over-priced for the amount of LEGO you get. The only one that I even really liked the design on was the Space Needle. The new “Fallingwater” one looks interesting, but by looking at the amount of pieces, it looks like it will be even more than $20.

The general idea of the LEGO Architecture sets is good, and I understand why people like them. I just can’t justify spending that much for so few LEGO bricks. Especially when I can design my own LEGO microscale buildings for way less.
