Recreate the Sydney Opera House™ a truly iconic landmark, with this LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012) buildable playset!

Introducing the world-renowned Sydney Opera House™. This masterpiece of expressionist architecture is the vision of young Danish architect, Jorn 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.

The LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012) features:
  • Interpretation of real-world architectural landmark Sydney Opera House
  • Booklet included with details on design and history (English language only. Other languages available for download)
  • Measures 4.3" (10.7cm) tall, 6.2" (15.7cm) wide and 2.6" (6.6cm) deep
  • Collect the entire landmark series!
  • LEGO Architecture inspires future architects, engineers and designers as well as architecture fans around the world using the LEGO brick as a medium for reproducing esteemed structures

The Syndey Opera House set is amazing and provides great fun for AFOLs! My wife loves architecture and I have to admit that this set has blown me away as well. With 4 building instruction booklets which can be assembled in parallel, we decided that each of us builds the parts of 2 booklets in parallel. Building in parallel it took us approximately 3 hours to assemble the whole set. If built by a single person, its probably around 6-7 hours build time. The instructions are easy to follow. There are also a number of neat new building techniques included in this set, particularly in the foundation of the smaller white standalone shells at the back of the building. In terms of new LEGO pieces we have not seen elsewhere, there were also a couple new ones in this set. For example black technic pieces with a joint ball on a brick arm with 1 axle and one regular hole. This piece was used to anchor technic bricks with holes onto which the white shells got attached in bricks with ball sockets. Obviously, the construction of the white shells for the roof due their unusual form and angles provided the richest new building experience. Once the individual parts (2 for the foundation, the major shells for the roof, etc.) were built, putting them together was seamless. And the result breathtaking! Its amazing with how much precision the LEGO designers captured the geometry of the real Syndey Opera House in this set. We have it now on display in our living room.

When I saw this set I was really excited. As an Aussie living abroad having something like this to display the most iconic building after the Sydney Harbour bridge in your home was hard to pass up. I really like a lot of things about this set but couldn't help but feel a bit disappointed with the overall value and build difficulty factor. The good stuff. This set is big, like properly big and for that it is impressive, it has good likeness to the actual building but the sails look a bit clunky up close and that's just the limits of Lego. The model is fairly sturdy and can be moved with ease and the front third of the model can be disconnected with out any real disassembly. There are some nice little details like the lamp posts around the outside . The disappointing parts: There are a lot of really large pieces used to make the majority of the model and while the building techniques are innovative and clever there weren't any really challenging steps. At the end of the day it was significantly more expensive and less fun to build than the tower bridge and has literally no functionality at the end of the build apart from being a display item. A possible way to improve it would have been some lift away panels and interior detail say for the main stage...but I would also guess that would add some serious $ to the already steep price tag. All in all I would say there are better models to drop this kind of cash on but if you're looking for an impressive ornament this may be what you want.

Great product

Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

Purchased it for myself to keep myself entertained after work. Ended up staying up for two nights in a row trying to finish the project before going to work. It is very detailed and my family loves it. It now sits on top of my piano in the living room, and all my visitors love the product. Definitely a recommend!

The best Lego set I've ever built!

By Sobot

from Hamilton, Ontario

Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

This set is one of the most valuable Lego sets I've ever built! I have never felt so satisfied to finish a set than this one! This set is not only a great challenge, but also a great decorative piece. Many people like looking at it, no matter their age. It also is very well designed as a set. The set is nice and tight and only a few pieces have fallen off it (the lights bordering the opera house). It also is on a very solid base and doesn't feel like it will break into a million pieces if you drop it accidentally. If you are an avid Lego builder, this is an amazing set to build!

Sydney Opera House

Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

This was a gift to my sixteen year old grandson. He received his gift on Sunday and it was completely done on Tuesday. That was only working on it a few hours a day. He didn't find it difficult but he is an expert LEGO builder. On to bigger and better challenges.

Truly Fantastic Set

By cadburied

from Rosemary

Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

At first I was skeptical about this set what with the high price tag and the piece count relative to the tower bridge, but having built this set I can say it was well worth the price point. First off, it is one of the least repetitive builds I've ever done, I was always kept wondering what the next step would be. The ten hours it took to complete this build just flew by. Next is the size. LEGO's rendition of the Sydney Opera House is massive! I could barely find room for it when I finished it. Lastly, there are lots of very interesting building techniques incorporated into the build. The curvature of the area that overlooks the water and the way the angled buildings are placed were two of my favorite parts to see come together. Amazing set! 10/10 would recommend.

I LOVED everything about this whole build and experience. However, I still fell as if 320$ was a little much for it. But it still looks amazing and very fun (and challenging) to build

    Must Have for the Collector

    By JenMcc

    from Huntington Beach

    Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

    I bought this as a Christmas present for my partner and she was so excited to build it. We collect all sorts of Legos and already have the Tower Bridge. This set is very impressive in size and structure. It's exactly like the real Sidney Opera House. The lines are clean and the base is very sturdy. I highly recommend this set for any Lego collector. It looks great and takes a while to build.
