Saw Nathan Sawaya’s Lego art called “The art of the brick” on CBS Sunday Morning show couple of days ago.

There’s a good reason why the anchor woman can’t keep a straight face.  The caption on the bottom of the screen reads,  “32 year old unemployed Mr. Park dies after stepping on a Lego.”  Seriously, it makes me feel much better about my life.  Is that wrong?  Yeah…. it probably is!

i’m not an architecture buff by any means. i don’t know anything about architecture. but i’ve always loooved it. i like buildings. old, new, futuristic, plain, modern, colonial, etc. etc. i like how they fit and exist in an environment. i love how they’re built. i just love everything about it. i actually wished i studied architecture because that’s something i really interested in. but for now, i can only admire. 

anyway, i don’t know many architecture names. i know frank ghery and frank lloyd wright. two major names. well lego and brickstructures and the frank lloyd wright foundation teamed up to bring the masses lego sets of frank lloyd’s buildings. AWESOMEEE.

seriously. a great gift for young architect wannabes or even architect fanatics. read more about it on yatzer.

so i don’t know anything about art. i don’t know history, artist names, artist works, genres, etc. etc. i just know what i see and if i like what i see. so i was perusing yatzer, and came across jan vormann’s work in berlin. it’s really cool for a couple of reasons. i’ve actually been to berlin. i was there for a week for school. i can’t tell you the names and places i’ve been but trust me, i was in the heart of berlin. i actually remember potsdamer. is that right? anyway, there are parts of berlin that’s really new with cool buildings and whatnot. but there are a lot of places in berlin that are actually preserved from the old days. so jan vormann goes around plugging some holes with plastic (lego) pieces aka dispatching. 

i think the lego pieces adds a nice little twist on the historicness of it all. i’m big on colors and whatnot so it’s really refreshing and vibrant. i could see how some people think it’s tacky or something. but look how the pieces fit so snugly. i think it’s really cool.
