Future High-Rises May Look Like Giant Toy Building Blocks [Pics]

Future High-Rises May Look Like Giant Toy Building Blocks [Pics]

The Vertical Village exhibition includes a tall, colorful sculpture to represent a contemporary approach to urban development.

The Vertical Village exhibition takes a closer look at the rapid urban transformation in East Asia. It includes a 6-meter tall outdoor installation that looks like a pile of colorful toy building blocks. The sculpture is a concept model that combines qualities of traditional villages with contemporary urban planning strategies. Each unique housing block can be stacked on top of each other to create an interesting high-rise rather than the usual tall, gray building.

The exhibition has been put together by MVRDV, The Why Factory and the JUT Foundation for Arts and Architecture. It’s the fourth edition of the exhibition series ‘Museum of Tomorrow’ and will be on display in Taipei, Taiwan until 8 January, 2012.
