City Blocks

Muji’s whimsical New York in a Bag, newly available from the MoMA store, reduces the teeming metropolis to a set of wooden blocks. There are some nondescript office towers, a few cars (presumably taxis), and the usual icons: Lady Liberty, the Chrysler Building, and the Guggenheim. A closer look also reveals Edward Durell Stone and Philip Goodwin’s 1939 MoMA building. The International Style has never looked so cute.
