Habitat is the first in the Blockitecture® series, designed by James Paulius for Metaproject, an industry projects class produced by the Rochester Institute of Technology in partnership with Areaware. The forms were inspired by Habitat 67, a housing complex and pavilion designed by Moshe Safdie for the 1967 World's Fair in Montreal, Canada.
Design your own cityscape with these high-quality architectural building blocks. Made from New Zealand pine, the hexagonal shape and cutout sections allow for unique designs using nesting and cantilevered overhangs. The blocks were originally designed as visuals for use in a professional setting. Habitat set includes 10 colored pieces in a variety of shapes and sizes. Garden City set contains 20 pieces consisting of modern-looking white buildings with garden terraces. ~ Bob
