LEGO Unveils U.S. Capitol Building Set

LEGO unveils the latest addition to its Architecture series, the United States Capitol Building.

Located in Washington DC, the U.S. Capitol is a magnificent example of neoclassical architecture covering more than 1.5 million square feet and with over 600 rooms and miles of corridors. The building that we see today is the result of several major periods of construction, which has taken place since president George Washington first laid the cornerstone on September 18, 1793.

The LEGO interpretation focuses on the structure's striking white, columned façade with its famous steps and lawns, and features a removable dome for access to a detailed interior depicting the famous National Statuary Hall, complete with columns, statues and tiled floor.

The set includes over 1,000 pieces, and measures 6-inches high, 17-inches wide and 5-inches deep.

The LEGO Architecture United States Capitol Building releases Sept. 1 for $100 USD.
