The LEGO System enabled us to build the tower in a manner that followed the structural principles of the original tower to the extent possible. In the course of the build, you will learn innovative, interesting LEGO building techniques that will bring the architectural features of the tower to life in LEGO bricks.
Once complete you can imagine the breath-taking feeling of standing at the top and looking across the rich history of the city of Paris. It is the right set for travel and architecture fans alike.”
