About the Book

This playful and engaging book allows readers to explore and learn about the brutalist and modernist architecture erected in the former Eastern Bloc and ex-Yugoslavia, and build some of their most intriguing edifices, from the massive housing estates in Moscow to the brutal skyline of Tbilisi.

The book contains nine pre-cut and pre-folded models to press out and assemble with easy-to-follow instructions.
