Have you ever dreamed of (or possibly even lied about) designing a new addition to the Guggenheim Museum a la George Costanza? If you have, then LEGO Architecture’s newest model is for you. The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum set provides the most realistic depiction of the landmark museum LEGO has ever offered, wrapped up in a 744 brick, $79.99 package.
This new set is an update of an earlier edition released in 2009, according to The Brothers Brick. The new version adds some true-to-life color, such as the sand green details on the rotunda, is much larger (744 pieces compared to 208 pieces), and is much more accurate in its depiction; air conditioning units are on top of the office building addition and the elevator shaft can be found at the rear of the museum. The details of this model extend to the street, where there are two yellow taxis and two crosswalks.
