    The Robie House is one of my favorites, but I wish they’d do more than FLW. I’d like to see a Villa Savoye one or Ronchamp. Maybe some Mies?

      There’s no tree through the roof nor cantilever in the Robie House idiot. Learn before you comment.

    @Chris : check on the most commercial website on the Internet, and you will find a Farnsworth House by Lego :)

    $150 or more seems like a lot to spend on a model of this detail.

    The aesthetic of the house is not appealing to me but after reading Kenneth Frampton’s tectonic study, I was tuned in a little more to some very innovative structural strategies employed that are interesting and relevant today…

    unfortunately I see none of that reflected in this facsimile… it may pay homage to the venerable architect, but it looks like an expensive missed opportunity for learning.
