Wikipedia describes the Lego Architecture series as such: “Lego Architecture is a sub-brand and product range of the Lego construction toy, which aims to “celebrate the past, present and future of architecture through the Lego Brick”. The brand includes a series of Lego sets designed by ‘Architectural Artist’ Adam Reed Tucker, and each contain the pieces and instructions to build a model of a famous architectural building in micro-scale.

In its celebration of micro-scale models are several renowned models, like:

1
Louvre Museum – the world’s largest museum and a historic monument in Paris

2
The White House – the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States

3
The Eiffel Tower – a wrought iron lattice tower on the Champ de Mars in Paris

Facebook user Tay Kay Chin said that a 470-piece micro-scale model of the NAC (Rubbish) Bin Centre has not been added to the prestigious series.

He is just kidding (of course) and was taking a jibe at the National Arts Council’s (NAC) justification for the $410,000 consultation cost for the rubbish bin centre. NAC said the construction “was more complex and required significantly more design expertise, technical consultancy services and effort to coordinate with multiple parties” and these were the reasons for the fee to be above the norm.
