Right for you?
The LEGO Architecture Farnsworth House 21009 is perfect for:
- Experienced LEGO builders and collectors
- Fans of architecture and iconic buildings
Farnsworth House was designed by Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and constructed between 1945 and 1951 as a one-room weekend retreat. It's located in a once-rural setting, 89 km(55 miles) southwest of Chicago on a 240,000 m2(60-acre) estate adjoining the Fox River, in the city of Plano, Illinois, and now it's available as part of the LEGO Architecture range.
Few one-room homes are as strikingly modern and instantly recognisable as the Farnsworth House; a single-storey steel structure with floor-to-ceiling glass walls which was designed to open a minimalist interior to nature in an extreme way.
The space in Farnsworth flows around two wood blocks called "cores". The fireplace-kitchen core appears almost as a separate house nestling within the larger glass house. The materials used are quietly luxurious - travertine floors, primavera paneling and silk curtains - and the detailing minimal and meticulous.
This highly detailed LEGO replica, captures all of the distinctive features that make Farnsworth an architectural landmark. Made from grey bricks and measuring 25cm wide, the model sits on a labelled, grey and black base. The set includes a booklet full of details about this Illinois landmark
