Another big set I got for Christmas is the iconic Architecture Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (21035), which is one I have been wanting since I first seeing the theme. The real building is a mad shape and it has been rendered very well in LEGO here. It’s the second time this subject has appeared in the Architecture line. The original set (21004) was one of the earliest Architecture sets released – but personally I’m not keen on it as it is far less detailed and there are too many studs visible.
This version, however, is much closer to the real thing, and is perfectly in scale for Micropolis – the yellow taxis on the road in front are exactly the same as they would be in Micropolis. I am contemplating whether I should put it on a Micropolis 1/2 block base, but I will have to see. It does look good on the base it comes with in the meantime.
