Accurate and detailed

Summary: This is one of my favorite entries in the Architecture line. There's a nice variety in each of the subsections that it doesn't end up feeling repetitive, although of course the main building itself has a fair number of the same elements.
Summary: I was excited to build the UN headquarters as I have built many of the other architecture sets. Then as I was building one of the blocks was not the correct size and the other pieces wouldn't fit in.
Summary: I want to start by saying that this model embraces everything I think the Architecture Series is about. Many see this building as simply the monolithic tower, but the real prize in this model is how they assembled the base.
Summary: Now, as with most towers and buildings, there is bound to be repetition, and this piece was no exception. Still, a very fun build, as the end result is well worth it. As there are many pieces that only have one space connected to another piece, I would recommend using a knife, the Lego Remover Tool...
Summary: This is one of my favorite architecture sets. The only annoying part was getting the "flagpoles" in the front to stand up straight. The building itself is very sturdy and is very detailed. The price per piece is better than others but most of the pieces are small.
Summary: One of the better architecture series sets. Creative use of parts (such as the flag poles). Nice selection of the translucent blue color bricks. Very representative of the actual building. Like most sets in this series, its a fast, easy build.
