I saw these nine gigantic towers of white lego building blocks in the Pompidou museum in Paris in 2018. They reminded me of science fiction movies of my childhood where fantastical models would be filmed to look like immense futuristic cityscapes. I took a wide focus measure of these nine towers, part of a series called Porocity, built in 2012 by The Why Factory, a collaboration of the Delft University of Technology with the MVRVD agency. Then I zoomed in, pretending to be some flying vehicle out of Logan’s Run or Blade Runner soaring in and out of the fantasy skyscrapers.
Can you imagine building this in the playroom with your legos?
Or looking out your high rise apartment window to such a cityscape?
