Mola uses its toyish charm to teach you about architecture and structural integrity

The sheer beauty of Mola is that it isn’t just a toy for children, it’s a tool for architects too! Designed as a way to truly and effectively test out your ideas and concepts without relying on softwares and simulations, Mola is hands-on, exhaustive, and encourages creativity and problem-solving abilities, but more importantly, it’s also fun! Designed by Brazil-based Marcio Sequiera, Mola comes with a few standard parts that act as the building blocks of architecture. Springs in the Mola kit act as girders, chains act as tensile cables, plate-pieces form walls or floors, and magnets help bind pieces together, whether they’re circular magnets for multiple attachments, or right-angled triangular magnets for allowing structures to retain 90° angles. Piece them together to create structures of your choice (using the grid-base for support as well as reference), and Mola becomes a scaled-down representation of your ideas and creativity
