Yesterday at the grand opening of the brand new LEGO Campus in Billund, Denmark, LEGO Employees were gifted a brand new set celebrating the opening of the new campus – 4000038 LEGO Campus.
The campus is designed by Danish firm C.F. Møller Architects, and features the LEGO Architecture branding across it.
Update: It’s been confirmed by another designer, Justin Ramsden that this is an employee exclusive
At this stage, it’s unknown if it’s just an Employee Gift, or if it will be available for purchase at the LEGO Shop in Billund, or on campus.
It’s a bit of an odd set, given it has the Architecture theme attached to it, but the set number, 4000038 has it more in common with Billund-only Architecture-style sets like 4000016 Billund Airport, 4000023 Jiaxing Factory and 4000018 Kladno Campus.
4000018 Kladno Campus is perhaps the closest analogue as that set was only given to employees during the opening of Building C of LEGO’s Kladno Campus in the Czech Republic.

Really hope this set isn’t just an employee exclusive (but I understand if they do), and becomes more widely available so that fans who make the trip to Billund can pick it up, along with LEGO House exclusives like Dagny Holm Master Builder.
Update: It’s been confirmed as an employee exclusive
I do like the concept of this being an employee-only exclusive set, as it does help deepen the connection LEGO Employees have with their new campus, and is a cool memento/reward for being part of The LEGO Group.
Bad luck if you’re a LEGO Architecture completionist though if you want to hunt this down!
