St. Basil's Cathedral New York's New World Trade Center The Arc de Triomphe Rome's Colosseum A London taxicab Hong Kong ferries Buckingham Palace. . . and many others Featuring amazing photos of LEGO models, and scale drawings of structural details to guide model builders, Brick City presents a modeler's panorama of contemporary urban landscapes.
