A modelling system designed for architects and model enthusiasts has been given a makeover.
Arckit Go Colours is a fun way for children to learn design skills, and is the latest Arckit product developed by architect Damien Murtagh.
Using over 170 interconnecting components to allow budding young architects to make a vast range of structures, the kit also gives kids access to digital components including SketchUp 3D Warehouse, Arckit Interative Digital Builds and a complete library of Arckit Arckitexture graphics featuring real building material patterns. Large floor plants, easy click and connect components and a brightly coloured design also make it the ideal starter set for younger children.
Damien, founder of Arckit, originally created the award-winning Arckit system as a tool for architects to physically explore ideas and communicate their designs to clients. The original Arckit quickly jumped over to the toy market, and is now stocked in stores including Harrods and the Science Museum in the UK and Barnes & Noble in the US.
He commented: “Arckit Go Colours’ eye-catching design was really important to us; it had to be bright and colourful, yet still work as a solid building tool to enable kids to create their own structures. What Arckit does is take an interest in modeling, which children pick up from games like Minecraft, and bring it back to the real world with a 3D physical product. Kids love it as a significant step up from their toy building blocks to a more sophisticated building tool, and both parents and teachers appreciate it for its educational attributes and for getting children away from a TV or computer screen.”
