LEGO NEUSCHWANSTEIN CASTLE
Lego has a long history of producing architecturally inspired models at large scale for the collector audience. This design recreates the famous Bavarian castle with 4,303 bricks, which would make it the third largest Lego set in history. For those who can't wait for this design to get 10,000 votes, reverse-engineering the model from the CAD images the designer submitted shouldn't prove too difficult, especially coupled with photos that other builders have posted about their own Lego Neuschwanstein Castles.
Proposing architecturally inspired designs is always risky. One designer who created a Le Corbusier-inspired model had his project canceled when Lego announced the building was part of their official architecture series.
