Arckit, an Ireland-based architectural model manufacturer, hopes to inspire the next generation of architects with their building kits. They recently launched two new products geared toward urban planning on Kickstarter. The colorful Arckit Cityscape and the sleek Arckit Masterplan assembly kits are intended spark the imaginations of kids and adults alike.

Arckit founder Damien Murtagh told Dezeen that the kits are meant to make urban planning and architecture something that anyone can grasp. “For our new products, we wanted to stay true to our original roots as a professional tool, whilst also developing a product that opens up the world of architecture to a wider audience. Arckit is about making architecture and design accessible to everyone,” he said.

Arckit has earned about two-thirds of its $33,574 Kickstarter goal, offering kits of various sizes and colors at different reward levels, starting at $21 for the smallest Cityscape set.
