Another Historic US Landmark Now Gets The LEGO Treatment: A Look At The LEGO Architecture US Capitol Building 21030.

21030

There’s so much to anticipate with LEGO’s September Store Calendar, one of which is the LEGO Architecture US Capitol Building 21030. We first learned about this brick-built version of the iconic US landmark last January during Nuremberg’s Toy Fair in Germany. News has been quite slow since then regarding this excellent set, though Amazon’s UK site has previously listed 21030 in their database last April, but for some reason the entry has been removed. However, as of the moment, set 21030 has reappeared and this time it lands on Amazon’s Japanese website.

Just recently, The LEGO Group has finally released its official press release for the LEGO Architecture US Capitol Building 21030 together with some close up photos. According to TLG, set 21030 comes with more than 1,000 elements and bricks and will retail at $99.99. It will be available for sale directly through LEGO brand stores and at shop.LEGO.com beginning September 1.

Build a LEGO® brick model of one of the world’s most architecturally impressive and symbolically important structures.

Located in Washington DC, the United States Capitol is a magnificent example of neoclassical architecture covering more than 1.5 million square feet and with over 600 rooms and miles of corridors. The building that we see today is the result of several major periods of construction that have taken place since president George Washington first laid the cornerstone on September 18, 1793. This meticulously detailed LEGO Architecture interpretation of the U.S. Capitol focuses on the structure’s striking white, columned façade with its famous steps and lawns, and features a removable dome for access to a detailed interior depicting the famous National Statuary Hall, complete with columns, statues and tiled floor.
