Building Colorful Patchwork

I've seen some pretty amazing Lego creations, but I'll be honest, this is one of my all-time favorites. 
Artist Jan Vormann is sneaking around Berlin, patching up buildings with colorful Lego blocks. 
I love this for its honest simplicity—Vormann is actually using Legos in their purest form—as bricks. Tiny, playful, colorful bricks, that add a contemporary element to an historic or old structure. 
Called Dispatchwork, organizations have started sponsoring Lego patchwork around the world.

Perhaps we'll see more of this type of building repair as city budgets continue to suffer. Maybe they'll even start hiring children as building advisors!
