If you consider yourself as an artist and you love paper architecture here you have two awesome modernist mockups.

You need not build them during class time. Just at home or during your breaks (playground)

If you finish one of them:

  • You will receive a special certificate

  • We will exhibit your mockup in the hall of the school

  • We will take a photo of you and your mockup and it will be uploaded to Mirasur's Facebook page and to the MirArt webpage.

Who knows! Maybe you become a famous paper artist one day!
