Playing on the High Line

Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has just created a wonderfully playful little project for New York City’s hugely popular High Line park. The collectivity project , developed in collaboration with ten architectural firms with local buildings, is an interactive installation that invites the public to construct an imaginary cityscape with thousands of white LEGO blocks.

The installation runs until September 30, 2015 and is located on the High Line at West 30th Street.
