Event: Olafur Eliasson – The cubic structural evolution project

“Lay the foundations of your own miniature skyscraper, or elaborate on a pre-existing one, in an evolving Lego world.”

Check out this installation of Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson in the Auckland Art Gallery open now. 

This hands on installations encourages all visitors to create their own miniature sky scrapers out of white lego blocks scatter along a 12 metre long table.

“Towering cityscapes emerge out of the rubble of Lego bricks and constantly evolve as new visitors contribute to the work through construction, modification, destruction and re-construction – processes inherent to the lifecycle of any metropolis.”

Visit the Art Gallery (free entry) to get involved and design your own sky scrapper!
