Fixing the city with Lego

Sometimes, it's difficult to look around in the city and see all the decay. Many people just walk by without noticing, or without being bothered. Well, not artist Jan Vormann. However, his method of repairing holes in the walls is a bit unconventional, to say the least. What he does is basically filling holes in brittle walls with blocks. Thus far nothing too unconventional. However, the blocks are not ordinary blocks, but pieces of Lego. The repair probably doesn't last too long (because the neighborhood children will probably add the lego bricks to their private collections), but the initiative is a playful, colourful statement against careless decay.
