Blok Wschodni/ Eastern Block | ZUPAGRAFIKA
“Blok Wschodni / Eastern Block” is a collection of paper models representing various modernist buildings in Warsaw, Poland. The series is made up of iconic examples of functional architecture (Rotunda PKO), some less classic buildings, however, familiar to the city dwellers (Za Żelazną Bramą, Smolna 8, Mokotów), as well as ”Wielka Płyta” prefab bloks from the outskirts (Tarchomin). The whole set is eco-friendly as it is made from 100% recycled paper and carton. Each building is hand-drawn and includes a short technical note on its architects, year of construction and exact location.

Designers’ Collection Home Plans, Plan E-2400
i was always taught, in school, not to diagram in plan. Plans, I was told, offer little by the way of individual experience, which is much better captured in section or in elevation.
I marvel at how the priority of subjectivity dominates even the smallest of details in how we construct our lives. In plan we see our relations to each other spelled out, their inequalities, imbalances, and their internal pathways. With some notable exceptions, the vast majority of recent architectural innovation has been in section.
Without a serious inquiry into how we organize ourselves in plan, we risk leaving our spatial relationships unexamined. If we are to truly live new lives, we need to take down walls and put new ones up.

i was very annoyed this morning to find “the incredible hulks: jonathan meades’ a-z of brutalism’in my feed. the post links to an article promoting a new tv series about brutalism which, disclaimer, i haven’t seen. what annoyed me is admittedly a minor point. of course, mr. meades is writing about english brutalism, and it is fine that it should take center stage. his a-z includes several other…
