It is now possible to create accurate LEGO skyscrapers, with a newly released collection of building-block cityscapes. The Architecture Skyline Collection differs from past kits and provides kids with the bricks and instructions needed to meticulously recreate famous skylines.

The collection features famous structures from around the world, in cities like New York City, Berlin and Venice. The New York kit lets kids recreate the Chrysler building, the Empire State Building, the Statue of Liberty, the Flat Iron Building and the newly opened One World Trade Center. For more traditional and classic architectural buildings, other kits allow you to build St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, as well as micro versions of the Victory Column from Berlin.

Although LEGO skyscraper collections already exist, this set allows for the creation of skylines rather than single structures.
