Introduction

Are you a fan of LEGO Creator Modular Buildings?

This set brings up a new building to the city: the Archive.

Archives are facilities where records like documents, microfilm, photos, books, tapes and modern multimedia records are stored for research purposes. All records are stored with strict organization for easier access and with strict care for preservation. Students and researchers can study the data in reading rooms. Big archives can also serve as museums for historically important records.

The model has a plenty of detail and features. It follows the features that appear through the modular series: old stylish look, the pavement configuration with a white lamppost, connection pegs for connecting with other buildings, creative construction techniques, detailed front facade, a way to travel between floors, interior detail like furniture, brickbuild sign and minifigures with the same simple face.

The upper part of the first floor's wall is also detachable for easier access. There is a pavement with a lamppost, 2 drains and 2 parking meters outside the building. Four gridded air vents are located at the base. The decorated front facade of the building consists of masonry details, a brickbuild ARCHIVE sign, a nameplate, 4 patina covered statues and 8 lion heads.
