The LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House 21012 is perfect for:
- Fans of architecture and iconic buildings
You can build one of Australia's most famous buildings with the LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House – a truly iconic landmark!
Introducing the world-renowned Sydney Opera House, in LEGO. This masterpiece of expressionist architecture is the vision of young Danish architect, Jørn Utzon, whose unique interlocking vaulted ‘shell’ design beat 933 competitors from 28 countries to win an international design competition held by the New South Wales government in 1959.
Combined with the beautiful setting of Sydney Harbour, the opera house has become a true symbol of late modern architecture and one of the most iconic buildings of the 20th century.
This LEGO Architecture series interpretation of the Sydney Opera House was designed by US architect Adam Reed Tucker in collaboration with the LEGO design team. A booklet is included with details on design and history.
When completed the 270 piece Opera House measures 2.8” (7 cm) tall, 6.3” (16 cm) wide and 4.4” (11.2 cm) deep.
