At least one LEGO Architecture set may be on the horizon this year
While the LEGO Architecture range has shrunk a little over the years, it seems that we’ll be getting another entry at some point in 2023.
The LEGO Architecture range recreates famous buildings and cityscapes in brick-built form, with a range of models appearing from around the world over the last few years. They’re a great choice if you want a little piece of a famous location (like Singapore or the Great Pyramid of Giza, to take some recent examples) to remember them by.
Unfortunately, the supply of new LEGO Architecture sets has slowed to a trickle – falling from a peak of six sets in 2017 to just two in 2022. However, Brickset has listed a new set in the LEGO Architecture range – 40585 – with, as yet, no name associated with it.
As such, we’re fumbling in the dark a little with its subject matter. But the information we do have does give us some clues to the set’s contents. The product number is radically different from others in the Architecture theme, and actually aligns more closely with LEGO promotional items. 40580 Blacktron Cruiser, for instance, uses a similar number – as does 40605 Lunar New Year Add-On Pack. Both of these sets are currently available on LEGO.com, although they require either steep investment or VIP membership to acquire.
As such, we could be getting some kind of LEGO Architecture promotional item in the year ahead – one which mixes up the broader form factor of the theme. We won’t know for sure until an official announcement by the LEGO Group – but if it does exist, it hopefully won’t depend solely upon LEGO Architecture purchases to acquire it.
In the meantime, you can refresh your memory of LEGO Architecture sets by visiting the LEGO Architecture page at LEGO.com.

This is the World of Wonders GWP. Images are already available so it is known to exist. The only unknown is whether it will be offered in February or March.
