Call it an unhealthy obsession with nostalgia, but we think the idea of re-purposing childhood picture-lit to illustrate modern architecture is absolutely brilliant. Here's what Coolhunting had to say about Modern Architecture Pop-Up Book:

"It features 20 meticulously-designed pop-up models, each the work of Anton Radevsky, who also engineered the now out-of-print History of Architecture Pop-Up. The book includes legendary buildings, like the Eiffel Tower and Brooklyn Bridge, as well as more recent classics, like the Guggenheim Bilbao and the Milwaukee Art Museum. Part history lesson, part novelty, the Modern Architecture Pop-Up Book can serve as a passable simulacrum for people who might visit the genuine article."

Pop-up books for high-concept buildings are all well and good, but will there ever be a Choose Your Own Adventure equivalent? Only time will tell.
