Architecture Louvre 21024
Build a model of the world-famous Louvre out of LEGO bricks. This magnificent art gallery, located in the heart of Paris, on the banks of the Seine, was once a royal fortress built by King Philip Augustus in 1190 to protect the city’s inhabitants. It then became a royal palace until the French Revolution and has undergone many changes over the centuries.
This building, a mix of Renaissance and modernist styles now attracts 9 million visitors a year and houses over 35,000 works of art, including the Venus de Milo and the Mona Lisa. In recent years a stunning glass pyramid was added, designed by the renowned Chinese-American architect, I. M. Pei, to improve access.
This 695-piece set features the prominent Pavilion de l'Horloge and the iconic glass pyramid. When complete the model measures H13 x W17 x D19cm. Includes English/French booklet, with details on the design, architecture and history of the building.
There's not much to say about LEGO that hasn't already been written a thousand times! It is the definitive building and construction brand, built (ha ha!) on enduring product quality and consistent high profile partnerships.
The company was founded in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, and remains a family-owned company based in Billund, Denmark, and best known for the manufacture of Lego brand toys.
