Lego Adds London's Famed Big Ben to Architecture Series

Furthering a recent crop of additions to its Architecture series—the Sydney Opera House, Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House, the Brandenburg GateLego will soon launch a miniature, built-it-yourself version of the famed monument Big Ben. "The most challenging in creating this model was representing the richness of 19th-century Gothic Revival architecture in a scale usually more appropriate for modern or contemporary architecture of smooth surfaces and clean lines,” said Slovenian architect Rok Zgalin Kobe, who designed the model of the London clocktower, which will be available June 1 ($29.99). All Lego needs now are scale versions of the British Parliament building and a teeny, tiny Clark W. Griswold.
