Abstract [en]

“Help me to carry!” “Okay! Where should it be?” “Just follow me!”E, soon to be 5 years old, lifts a building block at one end, while her father takes the other end and lets her show him where it should be placed. It is carefully put edge to edge next to another building block. Kid brother F, 2.5 years old, rolls a small toy car on another block.Building Block creations is a project with the aim to encourage spatial investigations through play. The project result are prototypes of four kinds of sprawled, large scale building blocks that can be combined: they can be rotated, set abreast or stacked on top of each other. As in architecture, several pieces together create a whole.

The idea of Building Block Creations is to use building blocks as a pedagogical tool to encourage ideas and dialogue about spatiality and objects. By playing with the building blocks you relate objects to each other, challenge your view of what is possible to balance and, if you feel the need, use your imagination to create a definition of what you have built.
