Construct Your Own Colorful City with These Sets of Wooden Blocks

Blockitecture Sets Build Your Own City

Intended to “integrate people with their environment [and] promote creativity, curiosity and joy,” Blockitecture is one of our top picks of toys for grown-ups. These whimsical sets by James Paulius reimagine traditional building blocks, inviting aspiring architects, designers, and artists of all ages to customize and construct their own colorful cities.

What makes Blockitecture sets so special? Unlike conventional cubic blocks, these pieces come in all sorts of shapes and sizes. In the Deco, Factory, and Garden City kits, for example, you’ll find an abundance of cantilevered hexagons—forms that, according to Paulius, “nest together in various formations, allowing them to counterbalance each other and create unique cantilevers found in modern and contemporary architecture.”

Using these unique sets, you can create three different buildings: a snazzy skyscraper, an industrial plant, and a complex with tree-covered terraces. While each creation is individually eye-catching, putting them together makes them really pop—especially when you add a miniature metropolis and park to the mix!

If you’re ready to construct your own creative world, stock up on these Blockitecture sets, available in the My Modern Met Store.

Blockitecture, a series of architectural block sets by James Paulius, let you build your own city.
