Unlike other kits in their Architecture and Landmark Series (which includes scale models of everything from Falling Water to the Burj Kalifa), this one comes with 1200 monochromatic white and translucent bricks and no instructions, leaving it completely up to you to get creative and design something unique.
However, you aren't left completely on your own -- it comes with a special 272-page guidebook flush with tips, techniques, and intuitive hands-on exercises endorsed by several high-profile architecture firms like REX, SOM, MAD, and Sou Fujimoto to get you thinking like a professional designer.
