Bureau A builds a model Soviet city inside L’asticot boutique



  • “No one is indifferent to their strong expressive forms,” Bureau A’s Joana Croft Dantas told Dezeen.
  • Swiss childrenswear brand L’asticot has collaborated with architecture firm Bureau A to install a miniature cardboard city at its Geneva store (+ slideshow).
  • Created to scale, cardboard buildings of Bureau A’s city are housed on a circular structure made of welded steel, which has a clothes rail underneath.
  • Bureau A was asked by child and baby clothes store L’asticot to create an environment that would reflect the creativity and playfulness of the brand.
  • The studio responded by crafting an imaginary urban environment that takes cues from the architecture of the Soviet Union – examples of which were documented by photographer Rebecca Litchfield in her Soviet Ghosts series.
