Architect Damien Murtagh developed a model building system, similar to Lego, that allows architects flexibility in designing and constructing, as well as giving clients a better way to comprehend a design.

Arckit, as the system is called, was designed to a 1:48 scale, Visual News reports, making it easy to create models accurate to the real-life, physical building projected.

“For many people, 3D modeling images are very difficult to fully understand,” the architect told Dezeen. “With Arckit you don’t need to spend months learning a complex and expensive software either, you just open the box and go.”

 

 

According to Visual News, Murtagh did not expect the warm welcome is product received from children, who are using the kit to conceptualize buildings just as much as the adult users.

Now there are four different kits to choose from, with up to 620 pieces for walls windows, and furniture. The kits can be purchased at Harrods, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and Arckit.com.
