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: This was purchased for a 12 yr. old lego builder and he had it completed in about an hour. Good collectable set with some educational value. We are big fans of the Architectural series and this is the 3rd set we have bought. Will be adding to the collection.
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...
