Top 10 Examples of Lego Wall Repairs

I hate DIY myself and as I have a crack in the wall outside I have been looking at cool and unusual ways to repair it. It was then that I stumbled upon a rather unusual art form where several people have been repairing cracks and gaps in walls with the plastic Lego bricks. But is there any practical use, or it is just to make them look amazing…

10 – All in all it’s just another brick in the wall! (Taiwan)

This is more of a whole Lego wall than a simple repair job! But it does show the level of work some of these Lego street artists are willing to go to. There must be literally thousands of bricks here, and of course quite a few man hours as well.

9 – The Duplo Code (Bocchignano, Roma)

OK, so maybe this is cheating a bit because it is Duplo rather than Lego, but it is still amazing, just a little easier to fill the bigger gaps. Growing up I never really had Duplo, I was more of a fan of Stickle Bricks.

8 – Bridge Over Troubled Brickwork (Tel Aviv, Israel)

What I loved about this Lego wall repair is the way the bottom arch curves round the stone, and if you look just above the arch, the way the round tower goes up the side of the original brick work is another great aspect of it.

7 – That will hold! …for an hour tops! (Bocchignano, Roma)

Most of these images if not all of them are the work of Jan Vormann. His style of using the curves and corners of the original brick work really makes them look like they were almost meant to be made with Lego!

6 – That should keep those prisoners in! (Humbolt University, Berlin)

As I said above, most of these are the work of street artist Jan Vormann‘s and his project called “Dispatchwork” in which he fills holes left on or in buildings remaining from World War II. He has done this in Italy, Isreal, Berlin and many other countries.

5 –Oddly it does give the wall a perfect right angle!  (Bocchignano, Roma)

Some Lego Street artists have said while they are working random people show up and start helping them to fill the holes with Lego! Maybe there is a community spirit that can be associated with repairing things, or maybe it is the childhood memories of Lego everyone has.

4 – “Dad!? Where did all my Lego go?!?” (London, UK)

Now this is a great example of Lego wall repairs done well. The near perfect symmetry with the original quarter-height wall is perfect and dear I say looks even better than any normal brick repair would have done.

3 – If the house falls down, can they sue Lego?!? (Paris, France)

It is all well and good using some Lego to make some street art and fill in a few holes. But this appears to show someone using it to support their house! But this is nothing compared to the next lot of Lego wall repairs.

2 – What are these “plasterers” you talk of?!? (Pyrenees, France)

Now this is what it looks like when people go too far with the Lego repairs. The house brick to Lego brick ratio is not good at all and I can only hope that no-one lives in there. Of if they are that they are also made from Lego so they survive when the house falls down (Which by the looks of it is not that far off.)

1 – “They told me to put a new door in they didn’t say how big!!!” (New York, USA)

Not only is this a near perfect gap filled with Lego, but it was the door that really made me smile. And that is what all this street art tries to do. Make people smile and think about the repairs that need to be made.

  3. I am surprised with local councils not having much money they haven’t started repairing houses with Lego bricks.

  5. I am working with the education department. We give children legos and let them build away. The legoland is in Florida, one mile from my house. It is usually quite a good time. Good people and I meet people from all over the world.

  6. I keep getting drawn in to reading more fun posts! This one is perfect… I have a ton of Legos I was going to donate but now I might have some use for them. Thanks for sharing and also for following my blog.

  7. Oh my goodness, this is too much… Lego!!! I love it! I wonder if I could get a new house made of lego, at least I might be able to afford one 🙂

  8. How fun! I’m sending a link to my sons. Oh the hours of creativity from Legos. Whenever they had an idea for a cool plane or tank or car, they would build it out of Legos. They will love this collection.

    Thanks for liking my post “My Grandfather, a Hawaiian Man” today. That one affected me more as I was writing than I had expected. He’s been gone many years, but I was missing him especially today.

  9. This is awesome! I love the ones with a little bit of character, like with the arch and the door. I would absolutely love to stumble upon one of these one day in real life. #1 is in NYC so maybe I will!

  12. I still keep my Lego set…plenty of them..and especially now that Legoland is in my country, it would be easy to grab more to have more ideas.. Lol
    I love to see them all, very creative of them…but to have it in real life…mama would be furious 😀

  13. Wow, Russell… another fabulous 10 minutes I’ll never get back!…. am off to contact my Government to tell them I think I have the perfect solution to saving millions of tax-payer dollars when they finally do the Christchurch post-quake rebuild….
    keep ’em coming… you got my (goldfish-like) attention!
