Temporary Social Installation In The Netherlands: Abondatus Gigantus
Lego-lovers out there, you can add this construction to your Lego inspiration folder. Constructed in 2011, the pavilion is an urban stage for performances of all kinds exhibitions and events. The temporary pavilion was built for the Grenswerk Festival in Enschede, Netherlands, in a public space. Michiel de Wit and Filip Jonker of LOOSFM were the ones who designed the versatile and temporary meeting space named “Abondatus Gigantus“. Bricks in red, blue, yellow, black and white were carefully placed to shape a church-like structure that reinterprets the use of well-known Lego bricks. Rising 20 feet in the air, the installation features a a honeycomb pattern that draws natural light in. Bouncing off the colored walls, light creates an interesting effect inside. One of many Lego-inspired designs, the Abondatus Gigantus shows that an iconic design can serve as inspiration for many other interesting projects.
