Lego Architecture: White House

We wonder if President George Washington knew how iconic and important the design of the White House would be when he chose James Hoban’s design on July 16, 1792. Fast forward more than 200 years and the Sandstone building is an icon of the the U.S. not just to its citizens but far beyond the coasts and borders. A recent addition to the Lego Architecture series, the 560 piece White House set measures 9″ wide — just the right size for your desk. It’s a bit bigger, but our Anglophiles may want to consider the Tower Bridge set.
