The Church of LEGO

Photo
In 2011 architectural firm LOOS.FM designed a temporary pavilion for the Grenswerk Festival in Enschede, The Netherlands. The structure, named Abondantus Gigantus, is made up of concrete blocks (Legioblocks) that surprisingly resemble the famous Lego bricks.  Once they're painted in the classic Lego primary colours, the connection is unmistakable.
The pavilion makes a connection between something grand and overwhelming (the church and its size) and something playful, simple and comprehensible (Lego). Due to the Legioblocks’ increasing global popularity, this building may serve as an example for all that may be possible.

  2. everyone, can you hear me, can you read our message for this neighbourhood? we believe that our problem still exist for a period of time. we can even show you guys about the noise problem that we have. The address, 3249 e23rd ave vancouver bc v5r1b6 canada, of the owner hangs out a silver plate at the balcony. a metal post is near the plate. therefore, when wind blows the plate, the plate would hit the post creating loud noises that we can't even imagine how loud is it. However, the sound should be louder than car engine noises. it even had sharp noises that looks like students using their fingers to slide the blackboard. damn, even i'm typing this, i can still hear the noises. so, people in local vancouver should keep track on this owner. we would thank you for this if this problem solve as soon as possible. just spread this news to everyone who is friend with you or just make a notice on the board for people to read. we need a hand for this. please help us, thank you

    why do we have an owner like that, a plate hanged for 24hours....damn!!!!
