Armed with 200.000 bricks students from Aalto University built 100 towers in scale 1:500 investigating ways to Open the Tower.

KRADS, The Why Factory and LEGO® brought 200,000 LEGO® bricks to the Cable Factory. Collaborating with Aalto University and the Iceland Design Centre, the workshop employed elementary Lego bricks as a medium in a series of architectural investigations, transforming the Cable Factory into an expansive Lego construction site and a forum for playful co-creation.
