What if I apply LEGO SERIOUS PLAY to a Jam? I should not ask myself such questions, because when I ask myself this, I want to find out the answer. So, my latest experiment was applying LSP to a Gov...
Designing an LSP workshop for a Jam, revealed a number of key differences with the design of a ‘traditional’ workshops and this challenge lead to a dynamic, exciting and challenging workshop management. Thanks to the experience, I have had kind of a guerilla training in managing the unexpected and I have learnt a number of useful issues which will be handy for future workshop design.So, I have identified 5 variables that should be taken into consideration when designing a workshop in any other situation where nothing is given and everything is improvised and based on the play-do-play-do mantra.

the human being is the only acting subject that changes and can change things: it’s the man who modifies, renews, changes, builds and makes sense… Therefore, man is architect of his destiny and he is the architect of the changes… and he is architect of the worlds’ colourful or grey destiny.

Building a better world
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars model that supposedly resembles one of Istanbul’s most revered mosques.
The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings.
The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films.
Austria's Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.” ~ If people would play more, they would care less...Life is much easier and not everything spins around the will to discrminate.
Why did I ever get so much into the bricks? I used to play with LEGO when I was a child, like most children of my generation: my father dreamt of having an Architect daughter one day. He’d ne...
The way we talk and think, how we conceptualise the world and the words we use to picture our world are just bricks of our minds, where material bricks come as a precious aid to better connect our inner thoughts.
Most data we study is presented in 2-D. And as clear as a pie or line graph can be, it’s still a once-removed experience, just something else you see on paper or a computer screen. You can’t grasp it or reshape it.
... '“We came to the conclusion that our processes were three dimensional but our reports were only two dimensional. We needed to see them 3-D"...By mapping real world problems to an icon of our youth, each challenge must be approached with an inherent playfulness. And because Legos are, by their very nature, expected to be rebuilt, patterns don’t appear stuck in stone--or just as bad--printed in ink.

The story of how LEGO started - a funny cartoon! For AFOLs and LEGO-lovers!
The world of toys and games is not immune to mathematics. A new study of Legos shows the variety of pieces grow with the size of the system being built. Social Dimension blogger and mathematician Samuel Arbesman explains.
This curve demonstrates that as the number of pieces in a set grows, so do the number of piece types. However, the number of piece types grows sublinearly: while a larger set uses more piece types, as sets becomes larger, they use progressively fewer additional piece types (so larger sets actually use fewer types per piece). This is similar to other sublinear curves, where larger animals use less energy per cell for metabolism or larger cities actually need fewer gas stations per capita. Essentially, larger sets become more efficient, using the same pieces that smaller sets do, but in a more complex and diverse way.

Lego for reflecting on preserving architectural heritage
History and hobbies collide in Sydney's latest slice of Lego architecture.
''Museums around the world are waking up to the potential of children and the child-like imaginations that so many adults retain,'' senior curator at the Nicholson Museum, Michael Turner says. ''This is a fun way to engage with the ancient world, which can sometimes seem dry and dusty."
The LEGO Group has been accused of being racist by the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria and are forced to respond to these claims.
"'We regret that the product has caused the members of the Turkish cultural community to come to a wrong interpretation, but point out that when designing the product only the fictional content of the Star Wars saga were referred to.'~ Perhaps we are becoming too sensitive to attacks?
We use LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ since 2006 to design strategies, business or services with teams. Why? Because we believe LEGO® is the perfect tool to engage people and their brains for cocreation! Let us wrap up how.
3D LEGO® models as artefacts visualise complex information. The information is now tangible and easier to work with. Adding or changing the model allows to add a 4th dimension: time! With changing your 3D models you can show how scenarios might change your business or business landscape.

CUSTOMER-BASED BRAND EQUITY PYRAMID ~ The Lego image disclosed [By Legoman's Blog http://www.thingsiwishiknew.net/backtolego/2011/09/23/assignment-2-2/]
ICON Eye asked several architecture firms, including Foster + Partners and Adjaye Associates, to reinterpret Lego incarnations of canonical architectural works.
The participants were each given a standard set of Lego’s Architecture Series–an expanding line including scaled, pixellated versions of Fallingwater, the Farnsworth House, and the Empire State Building–and asked to tap their creative wells in a rapid-fire modeling session. The results are about as quirky as you’d guessed, an amorphous array of melting models, staggering structures, and broken cantilevers.
