THE KAPLA EXHIBITION

Château de Blois
6 Place du Château
Blois

Organiser : Château royal de Blois

Archi'Blois

Fare : Included in the entry fee

An architectural playground for the kings of France, the Royal Château of Blois has been built in many different periods and styles.

And what better setting than Blois to host Kapla®?

Invented by a Dutch antique dealer who dreamed of building his own castle, since the 1960s these boards have brought together all generations in a creative and ingenious construction game. The castle is showcasing the architecture of some of Europe's most iconic monuments, with a Kapla reconstruction of the Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame de Paris, the Sagrada Familia, the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Brandenburg Gate, the Pont du Gard and many others, all brought together in the prestigious State Hall. For the first time, visitors will also be able to see a model of the Royal Château of Blois!

In addition to this exhibition, created in partnership with the Kapla Paris centre, there will be a KAPLA® play area where young and old alike can take part in the construction of architectural structures or ephemeral sculptures using thousands of boards.

Playing with architecture a unique workshop for young people

Alongside the exhibition, the "Let's play with architecture" workshop offers a fun approach to understanding the elements of architecture across the different styles and periods.
What is a column? Recognise a round arch, a dormer window or a pilaster: from the courtyard of the château to the lapidary rooms and the State Hall, this visit "bridges the gap" between the architecture of the château and the Kapla® monuments. With a memory game, modular models to handle, material samples to touch, decorative elements to observe and Kapla® construction, young visitors can become budding architects in the making!
