The Japanese Old Style Architecture by Taxon55 has achieved 10,000 supporters on LEGO CUUSOO. The project was one of the first sets that were posted on CUUSOO way back in 2011 and it now reaches the Winter 2013 Review Stage. The project uses various building techniques to recreate structures that personify the essense of Japan such as the shrines and hot springs.

The Japanese Old Style Architecture joins the Legend of Zelda: Iron Knuckle Encounter as the second project to reach the Winter 2013 Review Stage. Congratulations to Taxon55 for this achievement!

Every LEGO product goes through a process like this and must meet the same standards.
