"Okoshi-ezu is an ancient and almost forgotten form of Japanese paper architectural modelling, in which construction information is communicated to the craftsman through a model that folds flat. These models can be thought of as a sort of traditional pop-up, being erected and held together using an elaborate system of tabs, hooks and inserts — notes on the drawing indicate materials, dimensions, and textures.

"Okoshi-ezu, which first appeared in sixteenth century Japan, was most often employed for the documentation of teahouses, a highly refined building type which emerged at that time … Teahouses were carefully designed and custom made, and recording such specific design intentions required the development of a new drawing type — the okoshi-ezu. This method of documentation speaks to the level of trust in the craftsman’s skill, but also to the type of buildings that are generated from it. Often these designs reflect a spatial complexity that is subtly resolved in seemingly simple formal elements."

Blok Wschodni/ Eastern Block | ZUPAGRAFIKA

Blok Wschodni / Eastern Block” is a collection of paper models representing various modernist buildings in Warsaw, Poland. The series is made up of iconic examples of functional architecture (Rotunda PKO), some less classic buildings, however, familiar to the city dwellers (Za Żelazną Bramą, Smolna 8, Mokotów), as well as ”Wielka Płyta” prefab bloks from the outskirts (Tarchomin). The whole set is eco-friendly as it is made from 100% recycled paper and carton. Each building is hand-drawn and  includes a short technical note on its architects, year of construction and exact location.
