Event planners for Johnson & Johnson sought innovators from around the country to demonstrate their work at an open house party at the newly constructed Center for Innovation in Boston. Here’s how Brickworkz made it happen:
Being one of only a handful of Centers within the country, the Open House Party was more than just an office opening for Johnson & Johnson- the facility was a proof of concept, smack-dab in the middle of the biggest bio-tech area on the Eastern seaboard. This event included a walk-through of the facility, but more than that, it was the launch of an idea, an entire facility for Research and Development, with the goal of saying yes to experiments and coming at problems from a different, innovative approach.
And so the party for Johnson + Johnson’s grand opening was met with great fanfare, including artists, jugglers, ice sculptures and yours truly, assembling a giant LEGO mosaic of the company’s logo. They had me set up near the entrance so that guests could walk by and watch as I built, ask questions, and just watch something different. Of course, anyone who wanted to help build was welcome to join me.
When the evening concluded, I brought the mosaic upstairs to their office lobby, and laid it out for hanging that next week. The piece was created with 10 vibrant LEGO colors and spans over 7 feet long. 27,000 LEGO elements make up this piece, which now hangs in their Boston headquarters.
