LEGO Architecture Robie House 21010

LEGO

Completed in 1910, the Frederick C. Robie House, located in Chicago’s Hyde Park neighborhood, is considered to be Frank Lloyd Wright's most accomplished Prairie-style work. It is difficult, if not impossible, to discuss modern American or international architecture without mentioning Frederick C. Robie House.

Now this milestone landmark in American architecture is available in LEGO form. Prairie style is acknowledged as the first truly American style, characterised by dominating horizontal lines, banded rows of window,s and spacious, open floor plans. 

F.C. Robie wanted a home that would provide beautiful vistas of the surrounding neighborhood while maintaining privacy for his family. Combined with the long, narrow size and shape, the views inspired Wright's vision for the 9,062 square foot residence. The actual geography of the site itself helped determine Frank Lloyd Wright's design. Measuring 18 meters (60 ft.) by 55 meters (180 ft.), the corner lot was three times as long as it was wide. These dimensions led Wright to think of the home in terms of two long, narrow rectangles.

This highly detailed LEGO model was designed by architect Adam Reed Tucker.  A booklet is included with details on the house's design and history.

When complete the LEGO Robie House measures 4.5 inches (11.5 cm) tall, 16.5 inches (42 cm) wide, and 7.5 inches (19.2 cm) deep.

This is a retired product.
