Building stuff out of LEGO is great, but you’re always aware that you’re looking at LEGO pieces; stuff made like this has a distinctive look and feel to it. But if you’re into creating more realistic structures, Arckit may have what you’re looking for. It’s dubbed “The Architectural Model Building Tool”, and contains modular pieces allowing you to construct modern looking homes in all shapes and forms.
ARCKIT is a freeform model building tool that allows architects and everyone to physically explore designs and bring their projects to life. The interconnecting components use no glue and are completely modular, making it possible to create a diverse range of scaled structures that can be used as working models to communicate ideas to clients and to showcase finished projects.
The kits come in four sizes, called AGo, A60, A120, and A240. The numbers represent the possible maximum floor area in square meters, and kits feature 160+ pieces, up to 620+ pieces for the A240. Additional component packs can be purchased, although prices for the entire range are not on the lower side. AGo costs €59.99, or roughly $65USD, while A240 will set you back a hefty €339, or about $376USD.
