Beijing Architecture Set

Beijing Architecture Set

I am a 14-year-old Lego fans who came to the United States two years ago. I am a “Beijinger”, I have lived in Beijing for more than 12 years. I spend all my childhood in Beijing, this city gives me so many precious memories.
Visiting Beijing is the biggest event in my 2020 summer plan. I am planning to meet my family, friends, and get to know more about Beijing during the trip. Unfortunately, it gets cancelled due to the COVID-19. I think designing this Lego set will bring my heart back to the city I loved. 
People can always find both modern and ancient architectural elements in Beijing. The Beijing Architecture Set includes the Tian’anmen Square, the Temple of Heaven, the CCTV Headquarters, and the CITIC Tower. Those four famous sites represent Beijing's culture, history, prosperity, and innovation.
