Zupagrafika Honors London’s Brutalist Architecture with Paper Models


Polish studio Zupagrafika has released a collection of five paper cut-out models representing ’s brutalist architecture from 1960s and 70s. Scattered around the districts of Camden, Southwark and Tower Hamlet, the “raw concrete (paper) tour begins with iconic tower blocks (Balfron Tower and Space House), leads through council estates doomed to premature demolition (Robin Hood Gardens and Aylesbury Estate) and concludes with a classic prefab panel block (Ledbury Estate).”

The series, ”Brutal London” is Zupagrafika’s unique way of cataloging London’s modernist architecture at risk of demolition.

Each model is printed on 100% recycled paper and cardboard, and includes a short technical note on the architects, year of construction and exact location of each building, as well as demolition plan if applicable. You can learn more about the series or purchase your own set, here.
