Architectural style matchboxes

Seen on DieLine.com (all about packaging design and manufacture...) "With illustrations of different architectural styles – Renaissance, international and gothic – together the match boxes create a small city block. The boxes are sold in the Swedish Museum of Architecture in Stockholm."
Designed by Happy Forsman & Bodenfors.

Needs a Modern design to round out the group, don't you think? – GF

You don't consider the International style a Modern design?

Sure, if you're referring to the ambiguous office building in the collection. Although it's not in keeping with the city block theme, I thought it would be fun to turn the box on its side to make a glassy little Modern house. Just thinking outside the, ummm, box a little is all.
