Miniature versions of Parisian Brutalist buildings made entirely from paper

Paris Brut is a collection of illustrated paper models by Zupagrafika Studio, which portray the Brutalist architecture of Paris from between the late 1950s and 1970s. You might recognise the project from our feature on the Brutal London series last year, also created by the studio.

The latest series features buildings scattered around the arrondissements in the City of Paris, as well as the famous suburban 'banlieues'. Plus it includes a recreation of Le Corbusier's 1925 Plan Voisin – a seminal solution for the centre of Paris.

The 'Béton Brut' Paris tour starts with a concrete slab of Cité des 4000, leads through the round towers of Les Choux de Créteil, cité Curial – the largest estate in Paris, leading onto the Orgues de Flandre high-rise towers, and concludes with a classic example of post-war Brutalism, the Centre National de la Danse.

The collection is made up of six illustrated models to assemble, perfect for adding a little bit of iconic architecture to the office. The whole set is environmentally friendly, printed on recycled paper and cardboard. Find out more on Behance.
