Art meets science in this set of nesting hand-painted blocks. James Paulius’ intent was to create a timeless toy - for American design brand Areaware - that challenges the user’s creativity and understanding of physical laws.
- Habitat is the first in the Blockitecture® series. The forms were inspired by Habitat 67, a housing complex and pavilion designed by Moshe Safdie for the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, Canada.
- The Garden City set adds a pavilion and garden terraces to the original Blockitecture® forms. It's available as a 10-piece Standard or 20-piece Mega-Set.
- The Deco set includes new colors and forms inspired by colorful post-modern architecture found coast to coast all over the world. It's available as a 10-piece Standard or 20-piece Mega-Set.
- The Factory set includes new colors and forms inspired by the industrial architecture of the city center.
- The Brutalism set is inspired by the massive utopian forms and material palette of the Brutalist architects, who used raw concrete as their material of choice. Blockitecture® Brutalism includes 6 towers, 2 skyways, and 2 platforms.
- Parkland provides an environment of rivers, parks and green space in which to situate your latest Blockitecture® cityscape. Each set includes 21 parkland pieces, 1 pond and 2 river pieces.
- The Big City set includes 74 wooden pieces inspired by the architecture and public spaces of a sprawling metropolis.
