This Must-have (5/5 star) LEGO set is 37% off. Maybe you should add it to your collection, or purchase it for parts. It’s possibly even better as a gift to introduce the joy of LEGO building to people of all ages. At this price, why not stock up for the holidays? For more information, read our review of the set.
Sales are common right before a LEGO set is discontinued, so don’t miss your chance!
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.

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?
Please help me in welcoming Alexander Holroyd to the Brick Architect team! He is our fifth writer.
Alexander is a Seattle-based mathematician and a life-long Technic freak. He is fascinated by mechanisms in all their complexity and simplicity, especially when applied to kinetic art and mechanical computation, and of course, especially when implemented in LEGO.
In the second half of Brick Architect’s interview with Creator Expert designer Jamie Berard, we’re focusing on 10 years of the Modular Building series. I learned a lot during our interview, and think you will find it interesting too!
