The White House – Architecture – Set 21006

This Lego set 21006 – The White House – is part of Lego’s ‘Architecture’ series of models which first appeared in 2008. This is the 7th set in the series, released in July 2010. It consists of 560 pieces.

The Official Lego Description

There are few structures in the United States with the history and reverence of The White House, designed by James Hoban. On July 16, 1792, President George Washington chose this James Hoban design from six competing designs from renowned architects.

This six-story Sandstone structure was meant to command respect for the nation from citizens and foreign visitors. Construction took place from 1792 – 1800 and it was rebuilt by Hoban following the fire of 1814.

The assembled White House model stands 9″ (22 cm) wide on a base with printed name label and includes a booklet with facts about the building, its construction and its history.

Animated Build

Here is an animated build of this Lego® set, kindly hosted by youtube.com. The video is recorded in HD (720p) so for best results click the necessary buttons on the video toolbar to view it at that resolution (by default its only 360p) – also fullscreen would probably be best.
