These clever building tips will give you endless inspiration for making your own amazing mansions, castles, houses, spooky shacks, and more.

Learn how to: - Build amazing walls that break the mold, with brick-and-mortar effects, weathered walls, and loose bricks
- Recreate structural effects like timber framing, soaring towers and turrets, shingled roofs, clapboard siding, and more
- Elevate your models with "stained glass", intricate color patterns, and tumble-down wear-and-tear
- Use pieces like croissants, snakes, and goblets to make unique architectural ornamentation Bursting with clever ideas, The LEGO Architecture Idea Book will show you how to turn your buildings into impressive, realistic structures.
