Image if you dumped 3 tons white LEGO bricks in a public space, and got the local citizens to build their city, as they would like to see it. That is exactly what The Collectivity Project did.
The Icelandic/Danish artist Olafur Eliasson
has on several occasions collaborated with LEGO and donated 3 tons of white lego bricks to a community - and had the local local playful souls construct their city as they would like to see. The result is beautiful, as well as sparks dialog about urban settlement and the cities we live in.
In Oslo, the 3 tons LEGO bricks were for instance placed in a public space, at TullinLøkka, a central location in the city which was going to be re-developed.
