Building the Block is a 90-minute urban design challenge that uses Lego to explore the question: What does building inclusive and sustainable communities look like in the not-too-distant-future? Participants are presented with variations of Lego elements and readymade configurations and prompted to cooperatively shift and build communities that reflect the tenets of inclusive, accessible, and sustainable city building:
• Lego is an iconic material that inspires awe, problem solving, and collective innovation.
• Cooperative building sparks interesting dialogue and adds colour and playfulness to any conservative and/or unconventional setting
• Art composed of reused material is effective in maintaining environmental awareness
"It was such a delight having Ekow Nimako be part of Spark to bring the vision of an inclusive city to life through an interactive installation co-built with attendees. Through his artistic and imaginative use of Lego, he sets up the building blocks to have critical discussions on the future of our cities from an inclusion and equity perspective. I look forward to collaborating with him again." –Hima Batavia, Experience Producer, NEMA
