Bruno Munari

Bruno Munari (October 24, 1907 in Milan – September 30, 1998 in Milan) was an Italian artist, designer, and inventor who contributed fundamentals to many fields of visual arts (painting, sculpture, film, industrial design, graphic design) in modernism, futurism, and concrete art, and in non visual arts (literature, poetry) with his research on games, didactic method, movement, tactile learning, kinesthetic learning, and creativity.

Bruno Munari joined the ‘Second’ Italian Futurist movement in Italy led by Filippo Tommaso Marinetti in the late 1920s. During this period, Munari contributed collages to Italian magazines, some of them highly propagandist, and created sculptural works which would unfold in the coming decades including his useless machines, and his abstract-geometrical works.[2] After World War II Munari disassociated himself with Italian Futurism because of its proto-Fascist connotations.

“In 1945, at the end of the Second World War, Italy was a country to be reconstructed.”

Combining the “bricks” in different ways you can make an endless number of buildings, from houses to skyscrapers, ancient castles to modern garages, hotels, factories, aqueducts, stations, monuments, hangars, houses with porticoes, terraces, balconies etc…

It is extremely easy to start playing and you won’t want to stop. Each time you put one of these multi-faceted bricks next to another, even at random, a new idea will form in your mind for another building. A wonderfully creative and artistic set.
As Munari said, playing is a serious business.

The enclosed booklet has over sixty building examples to try and the possibilities are only limited by your architectural imagination!
