These Blockitecture sets by Areaware are a fun past-time for budding architecture enthusiasts and future urban planners. The blocks feature different angles to enhance the difficulty of the game; creating your make-believe city will require a little bit more finesse than if the blocks were all perfect squares.
For adults with a sense of play, the fun color combinations and window-lined facades of this set make it a great addition to an office desk or shelf. Not to mention, fooling around with these blocks will make for an awesome mid-day escapism activity.
Each of the blocks are hand-painted and offer a chance for players to challenge their creativity and understanding of physics. The inventive design garnered Blockitecture the first place award in the RIT Metaproject design competition.
