Tip of the hat to @BrutalHouse on Twitter for spotting these Brutal London paper cut-out tower blocks.

I think you’ve guessed what these are, a collection of paper cut-out models representing brutalist architecture of London from the 1960s and the 1970s.

The series includes Balfron Tower, Space House, Robin Hood Gardens, Aylesbury Estate and Ledbury Estate, all of which are packed with original exterior detailing, ready to be cut out, folded together and finally displayed in your home. The end result is, as you can tell, pretty stunning.

You can pick them up in bookshops across the UK from March or if you can’t wait, you can buy them online now. 4.50€ is the price for each, plus postage.
