Jan Vormann is healing old structures with LEGO blocks, of all things. His exhibit “Dispatchwork Berlin” has him filling cracks in monuments and buildings with brightly colored LEGO blocks.

Some of the holes being filled were caused by bullets during World War 2, making the use of LEGO even more imaginative. Jan Vormann is doing a great job of fixing something sad with something so positive and fun! You’ve gotta love that.
