Patching up broken bits of Amsterdam with LEGO



If you can build things with LEGO, you can fix things with LEGO, right? Platform 21 Repair held a Dispatchwork session organised in Amsterdam with a little group of enthusiastic dispatchers and a big bag of colourful LEGO.

Platform 21 billed this event as “LEGO fix for distressed walls”, an art project by Jan Vormann, which fits into the Platform’s very clear manifesto of reparing things being creative, outliving fashion and, à  la Nietzsche, making you stronger.
