DesignMarch: KRADS

Posted by Bryony Quinn,

The combination of architects and Lego is surely the most natural of design affairs and KRADS, an architectural firm with studios in Iceland and Denmark, have embraced it with happy abandon, creating PLAYTIME. The premise for the project is simple and the results intuitive; over two weeks architecture students use play and basic architectural principles to add space, function, scale etc to standard building forms like skyscrapers. The iteration of these forms and the basic understanding it awards to the designers is both aesthetic and also massively applicable to KRADS’ other education initiatives like their exhibition, Open the Tower.
