# Eastern Bloc # Paper Models # Architecture

From the functionalist panelák estates to the otherworldly concrete grand designs, the charm of the former Eastern Bloc architecture is certainly brutal.

Brutal East by Zupagrafika is a kit of illustrated cut-out paper models, celebrating the post-war architecture of central and eastern Europe, that allows you to playfully explore and reconstruct some of the most controversial edifices erected behind the Iron Curtain and in the former Yugoslavia. From omnipresent pre-cast housing estates to the mighty Soviet-era landmarks awaiting renovation or threatened with demolition, the kit includes 7 illustrated paper models to cut out and assemble, a short information on each building, and easy to follow instructions.
