Architectural model-building kit manufacturers Arckit has designed a series of accessible three-dimensional modelling sets for aspiring and professional architects, and urban planners.

Called Arckit Cityscape and Arckit Masterplan, the new city-building kits are designed to appeal to a broad audience ranging from young children, to hobbyists and professionals.

The kits follow on from the original three-dimensional architectural modelling system that the Irish company launched in 2014.

“We launched Arckit in 2014 as a professional design tool for architects. However, since then Arckit has become incredibly popular within education and with a wider audience of designers and makers,” Arckit founder Damien Murtagh told Dezeen.

“For our new products, we wanted to stay true to our original roots as a professional tool, whilst also developing a product that opens up the world of architecture to a wider audience,” he added. “Arckit is about making architecture and design accessible to everyone.”

In order to raise funds to put the new kit designs into production, Arckit has launched a campaign on Kickstarter. The campaign provides backers with early access to the 12 new kits with special “early bird” discounts.
