Other than the LEGO Architecture sets are there any other sets or series that were designed principally for an adult audience?

I don't think there's any LEGO set for which the age target goes any further than 16+.

Within the 16+ range, you'll find several sets, mostly in the exclusive sets (series 10xxx): mainly modular houses and some Star Wars UCS sets. Usually these are sets with a high parts count and a price to match.

There's a functionality to filter sets by age on shop.lego.com, but it doesn't seem to work properly. Neither Brickset or Bricklink appear to offer such a functionality (yet).

    Yeah, the problem with the filter is that it's aimed at filtering out sets that are too complicated for young kids. So you set the filter for 14+, and it shows you all the sets that a person 14+ could build: all of them. Dec 27, 2012 at 21:13

    Indeed, it seems to work that way, I hadn't noticed that. Makes you wonder what the point of specifying the minimum age, then.

As of 2020 there is now an entire range of "18+" sets targeted at adults. 35 sets by the time of this answer. LEGO has even went to create a web page dedicated to adults promoting these sets.
