Competition: five Arckit 180 modelling sets to be won Dezeen has teamed up with Arckit to give away five modelling kits from its new series. Arckit was hailed as "posh Lego" when it was first launched by architect Damien Murtagh over two years ago, as it is made up modular components that connect without glue. It aimed to provide architects with an alternative to the traditional cut and glue architectural working models, but the collection has since expanded to include kits suitable for a wider audience. "Arckit has been a success not just in the architecture sector but also within education," said Murtagh. "We have launched the new kits to meet this demand and build on the original range, so users can now use Arckit to design a wider range of models than ever before." "It's an extremely innovative and practical tool for students and professionals, but also amazing fun for anyone who is creative and enjoys design and modelmaking," he continued.
