Description

After World War II European cities were in urgent need of providing their population with new homes in the quickest, most efficient and affordable way possible. Soon, extensive estates were erected and started shaping the post-war continent’s urban landscape.

In 1950s-1980s the “house factories” had their real heyday. The new precast technology allowed building entire districts from scratch, especially in the former Eastern Bloc. Those urbanizations became tangible reflections of the pre-war modernist ideas of open urban spaces, minimalist design and social egalitarianism.

Inspired by the former Eastern Bloc concrete modernist estates, Blokoshka is a playful tour inside out the "sleeping districts" of Moscow, Plattenbau constructions of East Berlin, Warsaw estates built over the ruins of old ghetto, and the panelak blocks in Prague.

Blokoshka, Modernist Architectural Matryoshka, is a set of 4 pre-cut and pre-folded nesting blocks to open in half and place inside of one another. The kit is printed on recycled cardboard and can be easily assembled without glue or scissors. 

Includes a note on Eastern Europe housing architecture.

Pack Size: 25 x 25 cm. The set contains 4 sheets. 300g. recycled cardboard.

Moscow: 12,5 x 5 cm

East Berlin: 9,5 x 3,5 cm

Warsaw: 7 x 2,5 cm.

Prague: 4 x 1,5 cm.
