      Great concept: basic information about architectural styles paired with instructions for how to build using LEGO blocks.

      I don't own single Lego, but it has Brutalism, I was sold.A have a dream of this content, being mashed up with Jonathan Meades Dan Cruickshank voice overs as the models are assembled and displayed.Back to the book, it's outstanding detail and depth. Some of the models are just enough to explain the concepts and the example, but nothing more.This isn't a replica book.

      Wow! Incredible what has been built with Legos! It's been fun to look through the advanced copy we received of this book with my son and be wowed by the creations pictured. He especially loves the clear how-tos for building his own models after the pictures. Easy to follow and fun!

      A great book with synopses on various architectural movements and tips on how to construct models using legos. They give you a few examples to build with instructions. Includes a glossary with terms and references. There are also pictures of various Lego models and photos of actual architectural buildings as examples. A quick read and a great reference. I recommend it if you or your kids like legos, architecture or both.

      Anyone who enjoys the fun of building with Legos will like this book. My son is a Lego Building Master and he is featured in this book.

      The LEGO books put out by No Starch Press, including The Neighborhood LEGO Book, LEGO Adventure, and Beautiful LEGO, among others, are great books to buy, not borrow. They are better-constructed than the DK LEGO books (i.e. the page block won't break off the binding the first time the book falls off a table), and include beautiful builds, photographs of real objects and buildings, great - if complicated - instructions, and just you can tell that the people involved in the making of these books a [...]

      LEGO bricks are the perfect resource for a budding engineer. They are the type of "toy" that can stay with a person all the way into adulthood. Many professional architects and civil engineers readily admit to still playing with LEGO as an adult. The LEGO Architect is a fascinating book created by experts at No Starch Press and is definite eye-candy for any LEGO fan. This book is very inspiring to anyone who is interested in going beyond the typical LEGO sets that can be purchased. Showing off 7 [...]

      An interesting look at the more "serious" side of Lego. Alphin did a great job introducing various types of architectural buildings and its history and integrated into the Lego world and structures. The book contains more than just words and pictures, as well, it also provides instructions to various architect buildings. In a way, it's an advance look at the history behind the instructions and buildings. Recommend this book to those who love Legos.

    9. Robert on said:

      It's more of a "how to build" with certain models of styles taking up more time/space than explaining the styles. Still, it's interesting to see the various styles being done in Lego and the last section of the book explains the Lego "artists" that were featured in the book.Also interesting that Habitat 67 was done in Lego Bricks at the time. Didn't know that.

      Really love neoclassical & art deco, and kind of like high tech architecture. Can't stand all the other styles lol. But really looking forward to getting myself a Lego Flatiron Building! en.mpedia/wiki/Flatiop.lego/en-US/Flatiron-B

      Aimee gave me this book for Christmas 2015. I really enjoyed thinking about the various ways one could make models of different architecture styles using Lego. Made me want to get the Lego Architect Studio set!

    12. Du on said:

      Pretty simple concept, take a book which summarizes architectural styles and then show step by step Lego instructions to build an example building of that style. In true Lego form, the designs and steps build on each other and get more complicated. Very cool book.

    13. Chip Nitschke on said:

      Wonderful look at modern architecture starting with neo-classicalism and ending with the high tech sessions of today's buildings. The author sprinkles in some quick wit with context based lines throughout the book.

    14. Mattathias on said:

      Great introduction to both architechrural history and Lego model building.

    15. Ietrio on said:

      Why not use lego to reproduce known buildings? Browsing through this book you are sure to get one or two lego building tricks too.

      I appreciated the examination of real architecture styles here and their history.
