LEGO Architecture Summer 2019 wave features Trafalgar Square and a towering Empire State Building [News]

LEGO’s has revealed new Creator, City/Space, and Ninjago sets for Summer 2019, and now it is time for Architecture.

This will be the the iconic New York skyscraper’s third (and by far largest) outing in LEGO form following the simple 21002 Empire State Building and the more recent 21028 New York City skyline set.
