LEGO Architecture is a theme that seems to thrive in contrasting between its set releases. One set could be of a storied historical building and the next, a strikingly modern structure. Another might depict just one edifice and then be followed by a set depicting a city’s iconic skyline. The most recent LEGO Architecture release, Taj Mahal (21056), provides the first example. The second and fourth cases in turn are exemplified by 2020’s Tokyo (21051) and Dubai (21052). We’ll be getting more in that vein next year with the reveal of the next Architecture set.

Brickset has it that LEGO first revealed their next Architecture release on Twitter this past Monday, November 29, as above. Now, LEGO.com officially lists the LEGO Architecture Singapore set (21057) for our perusal. Like other “skyline” sets in this theme, Singapore collects key structures from that island country and groups them together. The set is dominated by the towering skyscrapers of Marina Bay Sands, One Raffles Place and OCBC Center. Below are brick-build renditions of the Fullerton Hotel Singapore, Lau Pa Sat, Boat Quay and the Gardens by the Bay. This writer has had the pleasure of visiting some of these locations in Singapore a few years past. Their LEGO Architecture designs are spot on.
