Product Description

CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs.

LEGO Architecture Falling Water. Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1934, Fallingwater is perhaps the most famous residential home in the world. Open to the public since 1963, this masterpiece exemplifies Frank Lloyd Wright's organic architectural style by intimately merging Man with the surrounding landscape. This highly-detailed LEGO model, co-developed and designed by architect Adam Reed Tucker, captures all of the distinctive features that make Fallingwater am architectural landmark.

To be able to understand why LEGO has been successful for so long, just look to the name. LEGO originally got its name from founder Ole Kirk Christiansen who combed the Danish words "Leg Got" which means "play well". He later realized that LEGO in Latin translates to "I put together." The LEGO set became a standard of creative play for children worldwide, unlocking the creativity to build vehicles, buildings, cities and more. Historians point to the invention of the wheel as a major turning point in world history. The invention of the LEGO wheel had the same monumental effect in the history of LEGO, making it possible to create cars, trucks and eventually the LEGO train building set that is one of the most successful LEGO sets of all time. LEGO currently produces about 20 billion LEGO bricks a year and has sold over 400 billion LEGOs in their history -- enough for every person on the planet to have over 60 LEGOs each!

Fallingwater is a spectacularly beautiful house in real life. The LEGOized version truly captured all of the natural elements from the waterfall to the pebbles near the river. The building process was very enjoyable in that it was like a puzzle within a puzzle. You can completely deconstruct the mansion down to it's foundation. For older builders, it provides a great and extensive look inside the masterpiece. For younger builders, it is perfect for playing a game of Godzilla. Every time i completed a "piece" of Fallingwater, I proudly added it to the base. Finally, this set is obviously a display piece, so that is my next point. Due to the house being an American icon, it is perfect to display on the mantel in the living room or with your other Architecture sets. So, bottom line, LEGO Fallingwater is the perfect balance between playability and displayability. It creates an atmosphere of class wherever you put it.

very bad, I went to the store to look for this specific item, and the person who assisted me told me that the store could order it for me to be deliver at the store, and I could just go and pick it up there, I purchased a gift card and the employee helped me order it from the store and pay it with a gift card. The toy was never received at the store because of some issue with the postal office and the store. The money was reimbursed to my gift card, now I have to order it on line and I am not sure I can get the LEGO MiniFigure Series 5 Colors- I am upset, because it's a waste of time and since this was a birthday present, the birthday is long gone.

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

I grew up listening to Frank Lloyd Wright's adventures and worked along side his apprentice 20 years ago. When I first saw this set, I was sucked into the greatness of LEGO Mania! This is a wonderful set. My 6 year old son enjoys building this set and he enjoys using this as a back drop to his Ninjago, Dino, City, Star Wars battlefield.

Great Decoration Piece

By Leo4573

from Undisclosed

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

I always loved the Fallingwater house and when I found out about this mddl I knew I had to get it. This was the first time I ever built a LEGO model and was expecting it to be a lot more challenging. The hardest part was probably finding all the the bricks I needed in the chaos. It's great quality and looks amazing on my bedroom as a piece of decoration but not really playable.

A perfect blend of form, color, texture, and style

By Kunom

from Undisclosed

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

This is a beautiful structure. It is a wonderfully different and wholly appropriate item for the Lego Architecture series. The most substantial difference to others in the series is that it situates the building in its landscape. How could you have Fallingwater without the landscape in which it resides? It is also relatively large scale. There are larger scale sets, with more intricate detailing of the building itself, like the Robie House or Imperial Hotel. But Fallingwater provides a good amount of detail on the building and the landscape: all in a compact package. It looks wonderful as a display model on my shelf. I WANT TO DISCUSS TWO SPECIFIC ISSUES, picking up concerns or notes other reviewers raise: the build (where some say it can be a bit fiddly and repetitive, but with some great elements); and the final presentation (where some complain about the choice of details, colors and finish). FIRST, THE BUILD. I found the build methodical, careful, and fun. It takes a while before the shape of the landscape makes sense, as lots of the structure at the start is there to create a base for the actual sculpture of the ‘ground’ of the model. Seeing the waterfall and river develop early-on is great. Then, after a few more steps you can see the forest and its contours take shape. As others have said, the build for the house is both repetitive and really fun (laying each little brick was fun for me). The house is made of five different units which stack and fit together like a puzzle. The main pillar and floor to the house fit into very obvious gaps in the landscape: it very much felt like I was placing the building on its foundations. Each floor to the build by itself is somewhat abstract, but if you visualize what it means for the actual house, it will be really satisfying. I have spent quite some time turning each piece over, seeing how the floors fit, how the balconies and walkways interrelate. The model as a whole is wonderful. It looks great from every angle and leaves me with a sense of the house growing out of the ground while being suspended over it at the same time. Two small little touches that I appreciated: the way the front and right most sloped edges have a one stud overhang, which give a sense of the landscape continuing beyond the model; and how the printed tile with the title of the piece is placed both vertically and using headlamp pieces, which give it a very low profile. SECOND, THE FINAL PRESENTATION. The designer clearly put great care into every aspect to get a model the right size and with the right feeling. As he says in the high quality, spiral-bound instruction manual, his aim was not a facsimile, but a model that captured the spirit of the building. He succeeded. Here’s why: - The key differentiation is between the natural environment and the house. The house is mainly right angles, and all tiled and smooth surfaces. This also holds true of the bridge, and the foundation stones. Everywhere man has changed the environment, the finish is smooth. Nature, on the other hand, feels more organic in both more gently graded angles, and most importantly, exposed studs everywhere (bar the river). Nature is studs, man is tiles. - At the same time, the house sits in harmony with nature. While a number of people critique the lack of color on the house, compared to the original. the intention is to make the differentiation between nature and house subtle: for one to blend organically and naturally into the other. The only cues you have are the textual differences. Color on top would make the house stand out too much from its surroundings, not be at one with it, which was Frank Lloyd Wright’s intention. The real-life house has different colors because the real-life locale, its natural stones, had more colors. So why not have a greater number of colors for both the house and its surroundings? This would have led to a model that feels too busy, too noisy, not peaceful enough. This model achieves a delicate balance between abstraction and detail, nature and building, form, texture, color.

Awesome Fallingwater.

By Toftsy

from Bristol

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

Fallingwater is my 4th Lego model from the Architecture range. It took just over 3 hours to build and the detail is outstanding. I particularly love Frank Lloyd Wright architecture so this was right up my street. The attention to detail on the waterfall and surrounding landscape are very impressive. I love the way this model builds up starting with water, landscape and the house foundation then allowing the balconies to 'slot' together. Very cleverly deigned and the Lego designer Adam Reed Tucker really has got Fallingwater spot on! Certainly my favourite model so far and looking forward to the next project, the Sydney Opera House. Absolutely recommended , well done Lego!

Beautiful house and true to the original

By Wingnut

from Pittsburgh

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

Growing up in Pittsburgh, and attending architecture classes as a teenager at Carnegie Mellon University, the work of Frank Lloyd Wright has always been a passion of mine. I remember going to Fallingwater when I was in 8th grade and the beauty of the vertical and horizontal lines supported by the cantilever design. I have been back a few times since, and when I saw this architecture set I purchased it. I built it over a three day period around work, total amount of time spent was about two hours. When creating the lego design, Lego thought of the engineering marvels of Wright’s design. The way the unit is built modularly then put together via sliding lock mechanisms is a fantastic idea. All the segments are designed to lock into each other and be removable (tried to attach photos that show adding each section one by one) to allow the builder to view the unique design. Some builders complain about all the little pieces in the set, however, once completed the design shows the horizontal lines created by the stones that the house is known for. One of my favorite things is no vertical blocks are used in the design (except for the trees). Only one vertical stone was used in the original house (in the interior). Two things that I feel could have been added (although minor) are the unique red outlines of the windows on the house (a specific red selected by Wright to blend into the environment), and the steps that lead from the living room’s “floor� to a patio below that is right above the river. This patio is unique as it allowed the Kaufmann family to sit on the patio with their feet in the stream, which made them “one with their surroundings�. For anyone that is a Frank Lloyd Wright fan, an engineering fan, or just an architecture fan this set is perfect. It shows the thought process behind designing buildings, and the engineering that goes into them. In addition, it is a great build and adds the “depth� dimension that Frank Lloyd Wright was known for. The instruction booklet has some really cool Wright quotes, and a perspective of the Lego designer behind the model.

Comments about Lego 1001617 LEGO Architecture Falling Water (21005):

A great example of how great a Lego build is when the subject is a FLW classic. The design of the building lends itself perfectly to Lego building components. I hope that one day this is released in a larger scale version.

      This Lego kit is a decent model of the real Falling Water that we had visited in Pennsylvania in June of 2013. My daughter and I had fun building this Lego kit together and prodly display it on our fireplace mantel.
