Jan Vormann's building blocks

Venti Eventi - Bocchignano/Rom 2007

Every now and again you see something that is so fun, bringing a smile to your face. I found this yesterday after reading the Sunday paper. Artist Jan Vormann plugged up holes in ancient, crumbling walls in four villages in the Sabine region in Italy with Lego!

I don't know how good this is heritage-wise, but what a fun way to show how to preserve old buildings!

It's really quite wild, isn't it!

How absolutely fabulous. I wonder how water tight lego is?
