Poring over interlocking pieces of plastic, Ayssar Arida and Sabine de Maussion's two daughters can't help but think their parents are playing with a new toy.Arida and de Maussion see Urbacraft, based on a system of interlocking white plastic pieces, as equal parts play toy and urban planning tool suitable for tinkerers from 10 to 100 years old.Arida and de Maussion tout the fact that Urbacraft is "hackable," meaning that individuals are encouraged to include additional toys and media in their urban creations.Arida and de Maussion invited over 40 architects and artists to create a piece based around Urbacraft.Marwan Rechmaoui, who has sold six-figure pieces to galleries and museums worldwide, produced a miniature version of a recent work using interlocking Urbacraft plastic parts.
