Architectural Paper

Happy 2011!  Good to be back with my inspirational musings and thoughts. 

If you are in London this week it's your last chance to see the first public showing of Robert Freidus' collection of architectural paper models featuring almost 200 landmarks such as the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building and Stonehenge, as well as everyday structures including houses, schools, shops and windmills.  Cut it, Fold it, Build it with Paper is a free exhibition at the V&A Museum of Childhood, suitable for all ages and ends on 9 January.

Cut it, Fold it has three areas. The first concentrates on architecture and paper models produced specifically for adults. The second is a model town, exploring how famous landmarks, schools and shops, stations and windmills were all popular to collect and make. The third theme looks at paper models produced for children, and how they have been adapted over time to make them easier to play with.  At the exhibition, paper enthusiasts are invited to make their own 3D paper buildings as part of a giant collaborative cityscape.
