The LEGO Shop online in Germany was updated to reflect 12 sets of interest to LEGO Architecture builders which are retiring soon—many are already sold out in Germany.
Fortunately, other global LEGO stores have not been updated to reflect that they are being discontinued soon, so most of the sets are still available.

P.S. Ever wonder if the scale within each Skyline set is accurate? In this previous article, I calculated the average scale (and standard deviation) for each of the first six sets. Find out which building has a massive 67% deviation from the rest of the set!
Please help me in welcoming Jonathan Jonas to the Brick Architect team! Jonathan is a lifelong LEGO devotee, joining us from nearby Portland, Oregon.
In addition to a lifetime collecting and building LEGO, Jonathan has collected a diverse set of skills and interests which include a degree in Architecture and a degree in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu. He is involved in a local LEGO User’s Group, and organizes the Architecture theme at Bricks Cascade, Portland’s annual LEGO convention which takes place in March.
Brick Architect runs on WordPress, which can be customized using themes. Because there are so many different devices and web browsers out there, I can’t test every possible configuration.
- Support for short articles (asides), which are displayed in their entirety on the homepage rather than requiring you to click to see the whole article. (This post is an aside.)
- Updated header image, which is now indented correctly on small screens.
- Improved Author byline, with photo of author shown on both homepage and articles.
- Categories are now shown on homepage and articles, but only on large screens.
- Font sizes scale more predictably to larger and smaller screen sizes.
If something looks wrong, please send a screenshot and description of the issue to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!
Please help me in thanking my ever-patient wife for supporting my LEGO hobby!
Amy Alphin is an elementary school teacher who has built the occasional LEGO set over the years, and keeps a large bag of LEGO bricks in her classroom to help her students survive rainy day recess (which is pretty common in rainy Seattle.) She loves to travel to see natural beauty and visit historic landmarks, and is slowly learning to appreciate architecture too.
Volvo’s Construction Equipment team has partnered with LEGO designers to explore the future of autonomous industrial machinery. Does this weird bug-shaped vehicle give us a window into the future of heavy industry, or does it lack a satisfying bite?
