In the spirit of their popular London series, Polish studio Zupagrafika has designed another set of paper cut-out models, entitled "Eastern Block." The series highlights Warsaw's modernist architecture, ranging from the quintessentially functional (Rotunda PKO) to regionally recognized works (Za Żelazną Bramą, Smolna 8, Mokotów) and a prefabricated block on the city's outskirts (Tarchomin).

The hand-drawn models, which garnered a Must Have Award at the Łódz Design Festival, are made of 100% recycled paper and cardboard. In addition to the building replica, each set features a technical note with project details, including the architects, year of construction, and precise location.
