LEGO Architecture Trevi Fountain (21020)

Amazon.co.uk continues to give us images of the 2014 summer LEGO sets and this one gives us the LEGO Architecture Trevi Fountain (21020).

Construct a detailed LEGO brick model of the world-famous Trevi Fountain, the largest fountain in Rome. Designed by Nicola Salvi, the ‘Fontana di Trevi’ took 30 years to build and was completed by his friend – the sculptor, Pietro Bracci – in 1762, 11 years after Salvi’s death. This stunning Baroque monument carved from Travertine stone has been the backdrop for many classic movies, including Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita. And, today, over 250 years later, the 49-meter-wide fountain still draws thousands of visitors to the small Trevi square.

Trevi Fountain (21020) is Next LEGO Architecture Set

Brickset is reporting that the next LEGO Architecture set will be the Trevi Fountain (21020). The fountain is located in Rome, Italy and was designed by Nicola Salvi. The Trevi Fountain is one of the most well-known fountains in the world and is a major tourist attraction in Rome. One of traditions to do at the fountain is to throw coins into it. The legend states throwing one coin means a return to Rome, throw two coins and it leads to a new romance and finally, a third coin leads to marriage.

The new Architecture set was discovered on South African LEGO retailer Kiddiwinks. There’s no other details at this time. If you’ve think you’ve seen the set number before, you probably have. It is the same as the April Fools set that Brickset “announced” last year.

LEGO Architecture BT Tower (21020) Revealed

LEGO Architecture BT Tower (21020)

The newest addition to the LEGO Architecture line has been announced and it will be the BT Tower (21020). Construction of the BT Tower was completed in 1964 and has become one of the most well-known buildings in London. Honestly, the price of the set doesn’t reflect what you get but at least you get a lot of 2×2 round bricks. Below is the official press release of the new Architecture set:

BILLUND, Denmark – LEGO® Architecture, which uses the LEGO brick to interpret the designs of iconic architecture around the world, has added another London landmark to the series – the BT Tower.

The BT Tower, formerly known as the Post Office Tower, is one of the most recognisable buildings in London. It was built to support microwave aerials.

“Every time I visit London I see the BT Tower on the horizon, so I wanted to recreate it in LEGO” says the architect and designer Eric Bedford Jr. In capturing the essence of the tower in LEGO bricks, Eric looked at the aesthetics rather than engineering, especially the use of colours, patterns and materials that define the ‘spiritual DNA’ of the building.

Construction of the Post Office Tower started in 1961 and was completed three years later. When built, it was the tallest building in London, at 189m (620ft) high. Today, it’s still a major telecommunications hub, and has a rotating restaurant at the top.

LEGO Architecture products feature well-known buildings, and the work of important architects. Aimed at inspiring future architects, engineers, designers and
