Build Your Own Modernist GDR with Modern East by Zupagrafika. The kit celebrates social modernist and brutalist architecture of the former East Germany and allows architecture afficionados to reconstruct some of the most intriguing edifices built between the early 1950s and the late 1980s: from the massive plattenbauten of Rostock through the icons of the DDR-Moderne such as Kino International or Haus des Berliner Verlages, to the now-demolished relic of East Germany's heyday, the Mokka-Milch-Eisbar 'Kosmos'. Includes 9 illustrated paper models to cut out and assemble, an introduction on the history of architecture in the former GDR, a short text on each building and easy-to-follow instructions.
