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

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.

    Awesome, But...

    Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

    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.

      Good Expert entry level build

      By AvalonsRise

      from London

      Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

      I'm just coming to the end of the build with the final Sail Section requiring assembly. In total will have taken me about 9-10 hours to complete, though I don't sort the pieces just dump them onto a surface. For an expert set its a fairly straight forward build and I would probably mark it as an upper Advanced build. If you are planning on building this ensure you have some where large enough to store it.

        Fantastic

        By LucasSteuber

        from Portland

        Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

        I own (I think) every LEGO architecture released, and this is probably tied with the Leaning Tower of Pisa in terms of the sheer creativity that the designers employed. I'm shocked that so much detail in terms of curves and angles are incorporated in this model given its small size. It's obviously a pretty unique structure, but to capture it so accurately and elegantly with (relatively) few pieces is a true work of art. I enjoy both owning this piece to look at it as well as owning it as a great example of what can be accomplished within the LEGO medium with a bit of creativity and a small number of tools. That's the whole idea, right? To see how you can defy the conventions of the brick system and make something that appears truly novel and organic? The designers nailed it on this one. Very impressive.

          Comments about LEGO Architecture Sydney Opera House (21012):

          I am so thrilled that Lego finally figured out those angles for the shells. It is enormous. There are a lot of small detailing. From this set, you get a lot of tan bricks, plates, tiles, slopes and different sizes of base plates. The instructions make the build easy to follow. You have to get this set.
