Repair the World One (LEGO) Brick at a Time

Jan Vorman has installed quick LEGO-fixes all over the world - from Italy to Germany to Israel to Holland.

Jan's "Dispatchwork" work creates a contemporary twist: colorful LEGO-street-art added to historical, aged stone and brick. Platform 21 (the same group that brought us the Rube Goldberg Breakfast Machine) liked the idea so much, they and Jan "dispatched" teams of people to repair city walls with Jan's method. Follow dispatchwork's movements here.

The results are pretty wonderful:

I love the choice to use multi-colored blocks, really adds to the magical feeling.

That's right, fill the streets with small plastic objects. I understand what he's trying to achieve, but what he's also doing is defiling old structures that have stood the test of time. It's just pretty coloured polution. Jan needs a good slap of common sense.
