‘Unofficial’ LEGO Architecture sets
The Brick Architect website was inspired by the amazing sets in the LEGO Architecture series, which was created in 2008 by Adam Reed Tucker. It is a great pleasure to see that The LEGO Group has continued to produce these premium LEGO sets aimed at adult LEGO builders for nearly 10 years. We have actually seen steady rise in both the quantity of sets released each year, and the quality of the kits—with an increased focus on finely detailed models and creative parts usage.
With this growth in official LEGO Architecture sets has come an explosion of amazing LEGO Architecture models by talented LEGO Artists all over the world. It was an honor to feature many of these talented builders in my book, The LEGO Architect. This growth has also led to a diverse set of unofficial LEGO Architecture sets, produced in small quantities by talented LEGO Designers.
Many of these custom sets were designed by members of the LEGO Certified Professional program, which allows them to purchase LEGO bricks in bulk and create up to 500 copies of each set they design. In addition to those sets, there are a number of kits made by talented LEGO Artists which were created without any support from LEGO.
