As children, the celebrated architects Norman Foster and Richard Rodgers both played with Meccano, the engineering toy, and they acknowledge its influence on their later work. This book examines an array of 20th-century building toys, including the American Bilt-E-Z sets of the 1920s that modelled contemporary skyscrapers, and the Girder and Panel sets of the 1950s that mirror modern steel and glass building methods, and analyses how they may have influenced the architects of later decades.
