One of the favorite toys of future architects is Lego, “one of the most intensely used building blocks on Earth.” As we grow up, it’s expected that we mentally file Legos away into a purely nostalgic place (i.e. last year’s insta-viral “I LEGO N.Y.“)

But what if us adults reclaimed Legos for artistic purposes, like Jan Vormann‘s architectural restoration-esque Dispatchwork project (including new work in New York)? Or James May’s house? Or abgc’s table for advertising agency Boys and Girls? Or Simon Pillard and Philippe Rossetti’s kitchen island?
