OK. I REALLY FREAKING LOVE THIS. LOVE IT, LOVE IT!!! Apparently, there is a 26-year old dude in Berlin, Germany who goes around and repairs old WWII bullet hole, chips and cracks with colorful Lego blocks! Jan Vormann, born in 1983, quietly goes about his daily task of repairing lost areas of walls, bridges and buildings throughout the city. Others assist him from time-to-time, in fact, he teaches others how to do it. He calls it “Dispatchwork.”


As a urban artform, Vormann has also been invited to Italy (the mosaic/tile capital of the world) to demonstrate his art. I think we should bring the artform to the U.S. Obviously, after the cracked wall is fitted with the right amount of Lego’s, the assembled piece must be glued into place. Vormann has been stopped before for making “repairs” to the exterior of a museum by security guards, but he continues to make a world a better place—one Lego at a time.

Lego, as a brand, was introduced to the world in 1934. It expanded to producing plastic toys in 1940. In 1949, Lego began producing the now famous interlocking bricks, calling them “Automatic Binding Bricks”.

If you make a Lego repair somewhere in your neighborhood, take a photo of it and email it to me. Here’s to Jan Vormann!
