Poznań-based creative design studio Zupagrafika (previously featured here) has recently created the ‘Paris Brut’ project, a collection of illustrated paper blocks portraying brutalist architecture of Paris from late 1950s-1970s.
The series features buildings scattered around the City of Paris` arrondissements and consists of six illustrated models to assemble: Orgues de Flandre, Les Choux de Créteil, Cité Curial-Michelet, Cité des 4000, Centre National de la Danse and Plan Voisin interpretation.
The project pays special tribute to those unfulfilled modernist ideas with a free recreation of Le Corbusier`s 1925 Plan Voisin.
The ‘Paris Brut’ set is entirely eco-friendly. It is printed on recycled paper and cardboard and includes a short technical note on the architects, year of construction and exact location of each building.
You can see the entire project on Behance. The kit is available in Zupagrafika’s online shop and bookshops around Europe.
