LEGO Bricks Replace Crumbling Architecture

 

Some kids idolize athletes, others idolize screen stars. Mine idolizes people like Jan Vormann, who goes nowhere without his bag of LEGO bricks.

Vormann has traveled to cities like Tel Aviv, Barcelona, and New York where he uses LEGO bricks to fill in crumbling architecture as part of his dispatchwork project. Some of his installments are done in conjunction with museums and are actually cemented in place. Others, he knows, may eventually fall apart and end up in the hands of a curious kid. He’s cool with that.

Vormann invites LEGO builders from around the globe to participate in the project and send a photo to be added to the worldwide page. This is good, because my youngest son sent this video to me via email with the subject line: I have found my calling. Watch out, dispatchwork; your first repair from Hawaii is coming soon!
