Olafur Eliasson: The Cubic Structural Evolution Project | Foyer Gallery

4 June 2016 - 28 August 2016


The Cubic Structural Evolution Project is a hands-on installation by Danish-Icelandic artist, Olafur Eliasson. Comprising thousands of pieces of white Lego bricks scattered on a large table, the work invites Gallery visitors to become ‘architects’ by using the Lego to create endlessly re-forming structures limited only by imagination.

Towering cityscapes emerge out of the rubble of Lego bricks and constantly evolve as new visitors contribute to the work through construction, modification, destruction and re-construction - processes inherent to the lifecycle of any metropolis.
