Late last year, I reviewed some of the new 2016 LEGO Architecture sets including Venice (21026), Berlin (21027), New York City (21028), and Burj Khalifa (21031). I’m happy to announce our very first building contest which happens to revolve around the LEGO Architecture theme with some nice prizes up for grabs.

Contest Rules

This contest will run from March 7 to April 7 and you will be building it similar to the new Architecture Skyline design. Choose any city in the world and create five miniature buildings or monuments that are famous in that city.

Since we’re keeping it fairly simple, the build should be more or less around 10 inches in length by 10 inches in height with some leeway for overhang no more than two studs.

How to Enter

There are a few ways to submit your creation. One way is to add it to the Flickr Group. Another way is on Instagram. For both sites, please use the hashtag #tbfarch so we can easily find your submission.

Entries will be judged on how closely the buildings resemble the real life building.

Fine Print

One entry per person.

Participants from United States Only.

Please do not use decals or stickers.

No non-LEGO parts.

No digital entries (LDD).

No digital backgrounds.

Please use a clean background with good lighting so we can clearly see your build.

Entries allowed until the end of the day April 7 11:59pm PST and voting will being shortly after that. The voting period will run for seven days.


After the votes are tallied, the winners will be contacted through their respective entry sites (Flickr Mail, Instagram DM). I will need full name and shipping address. The prizes are courtesy of The LEGO Group and I will be shipping them out personally.

Venice (21026)
Berlin (21027)
New York City (21028)

There will be four winners and 1st place will be getting first choice of one of the sets listed above, 2nd place will get choice of whatever set is left over, and so on. 4th place will get the last set that is not chosen by the first 3 winners.

I’m looking forward to seeing your entries. Good luck to all!
