Playa takes on Legos: Le Government unveiled!

The Brief: Helsingin Sanomat asks Playa to design & construct a Lego alternative for the new extension to the Parliament house.
Le Government is a collage of the Parliament's parties with their own sections of the building. Section's sizes vary according to the parties' popularity. The entrance plaza is a mosaic of Urho Kekkonen, nation's father figure from the cold war era.
