Architecton C4

61.00

A construction game inspired by the Alpha Architecton of Kazimir Malevich

The idea is simple: you play being Malevich as you create your own architectons.

From 1923 to 1928, the artist produced a series of plaster sculptures that he named ‘arkhitektons‘. These were compositions representing imaginary buildings. The architectons, in their diverse models made by Malevich, always featured a large rectangular block -which could be placed horizontally or vertically- to which other smaller blocks were attached, just like on the Architecton C4.

Handmade out of wood and painted in white, the smooth feel of this pocket version is similar to the original plaster used by the artist in his sculptures.

The pack includes 27 pieces of different sizes, all either square or rectangular displaying right angles.

On practice, it is a great tool for experimentation for architects, designers, and urbanists.
Appealing and solid, these wooden blocks resemble those used by creators like Frank Gehry to create front views of virtual or imaginary projects with real life precision.

The Architectons can be seen as a three-dimensional application of Suprematism. Somebody once said that an architecton <<is only a composition of stereometric figures, a thing of no use, with no other objective than to decorate a room, or to be placed in the middle of a square, suitably enlarged>>.

Create and feel creative with this constructive game or make it an ideal gift for art lovers and architects.
