Lego Masonry

I came across this street art project recently at Street Art Utopia. Jan Vormann of Dispatchwork repairs old walls with Legos. It’s usually temporary, but the mayor of one town liked it so much, he had the work mortared in place. Which I’m all in favor of. The connection between Legos and masonry makes perfect sense to me.

And very slightly related: Lego’s have a series on modern architecture.

    I love this idea and the contrast between the stone and the brightly colored Legos. It does make sense.

    Definitely not “natural” but a cool special effect. I’d never have thought to do this with Legos! A wack fiend of my made a functioning harpsichord out of Legos, so I guess there’s lots of untapped possibility with the material. (I wonder how the colors hold up under the sun…)
