Buildscapes puzzle activity
Buildscapes puzzle activity

Flex your creative muscle while building imaginary cities using beautiful geometric configurations made from slotted cardboard puzzle pieces. Inspired by George Nelson’s “jungle gym” structure for the American National Exhibition, Moscow. See how the city develops over the course of Sydney Design as you add you own cubed and slotted designs to contribute to a collectively designed urban landscape.
