Architectural Model Building System

Product Design - Education | Commissioner: Arckit | Creator: Arckit

Arckit is a ground breaking architectural model kit of parts that enables everyone to physically bring their ideas to life. Arckit is based on modern building techniques consisting of a series of inter connecting components that allow the user to easily and quickly create and modify advanced scaled architectural structures. Arckit has been described by global architect Sir David Chipperfield as a 'sophisticated lego' and by budding architects as 'reality Minecraft'. Any parent who sees Arckit believes that it should be in every school such are Arckit's educational qualities. Unlike traditional model making methods, Arckit requires no measuring, gluing, cutting or sticking. Now everyone can make advanced models using a professional design too.
