We're loving the super colorful and geometric special exhibit currently showing through August 31, 2015 by French artist Daniel Buren at the Madre Museum in Naples, Italy. Consisting of over one hundred modules (giant arches, cylinders, spheres, and more) inspired by the pedagogical work of Friedrich Wilhelm August Frobel, this play area, Come Un Gioco da Bambini, on the museum's main floor encourages children and adults alike to engage with the "architecture," rearranging and rebuilding it to their own specifications. These "building blocks" represent an imaginative city, while also mirroring the real city around the museum, exploring the possibilities within and beyond both the physical and the conceptual.
