Brutal East is a new kit of illustrated paper cutouts celebrating the post-war architecture of Central and Eastern Europe. Designed and made by the Polish creative design studio Zupagrafika, Brutal East allows playfully exploring and reconstructing some of the most controversial edifices erected behind the Iron Curtain from 1960s to 1980s.
Brutal East is now available on the Zupagrafika’s website. Every kit includes seven brutalist buildings to assemble: the Eastern Gates of Belgrade apartment complex (Belgrade, Serbia), Romanița collective housing tower (Chisinau, Moldova), House of Soviets (Kaliningrad, Russia), Jižní Město panelák housing estate (Prague, Czech Republic), Novosmolenskaya housing complex (St. Petersburg, Russia), Sporto Rūmai (Vilnius, Lithuania), and the Manhattan housing complex (Wrocław, Poland).[rev_slider alias=”2017-025-01″]
