Buildings in Boxes: Architectural Toys from the CCA

CAD 9.95

In 1990, the CCA acquired a collection of over three hundred architectural toys and games. The collection, assembled by the American sculptor and architect Norman Brosterman, spans nearly two centuries of toy manufacture in more than five countries. These toys have been the subject of a series of exhibitions and small books that, through various scholarly analyses, have advanced our consideration of how children learn about the world through toys.

In Buildings in Boxes, the architect and essayist Witold Rybczynski explains how his early exposure to these toys influenced his architectural vision.
