The 'Mola Structural Kit' is a teaching tool for students learning about architecture. The system, which consists of adjustable bars, lightweight connectors and continuous connection parts, is a tactile and interactive way to build out designs and conceptions that one has seen in pictures or put together using computer modelling.

Modern architecture relies heavily on software for designing structures. While these programs offer a host of benefits, it can be difficult for many architecture students to understand how these designs will function in reality. The Mola Structural Kit is a way to show students how their designs will have structural integrity when they are actually constructed.

The Mola Structural Kit comes with 144 pieces in all. It also comes with a multilingual instruction manual (the product is from a Brazilian company,) a reflection of the worldwide field of architecture.
