Where form meets function

Polish design studio Zupagrafika has found a unique way to draw attention to London’s modernist architecture, some of which is under risk of demolition. They have created a paper model series called “Brutal London” to document the city’s iconic 1960 and ’70s-built structures. Many of the real-life buildings can be found around the districts of Camden, Southwark and Tower Hamlet. Each model is recreated on 100% recycled paper and cardboard that mimics the raw concrete look of the original buildings. Included with the facsimiles are technical notes about the buildings’ architects, year of construction, location and demolition plans (if the building is in danger).

Learn more about the series or purchase a set at the studio’s Zupamarket.
