Skyline Chess was founded by two London based architects, Chris Prosser and Ian Flood. Together they take iconic architecture from around the world and re-imagine them as pieces on a chessboard, allowing you to play with your favorite cities and pit them against each other. The concept was first conceived when they shared a flat together and would play chess in the evenings. The idea grew out of a conversation about whether we could replace the classic pieces with our favorite buildings. This led us to design and develop our first set, based on the skyline of our hometown, London.
