A temporary pavilion in the public space for the Grenswerk Festival in Enschede, , ‘Abondantus Gigantus’ was to be a meeting point and a stage for performances and exhibitions. Designed by LOOS.FM in 2011, is made up of so-called Legoblocks: concrete blocks that are very similar to the famous Lego bricks. The blocks are nondescript, yet they possess an industrial beauty. More images and architects’ description after the break.
