Connecting! Block Town

teamLab, 2016-, Interactive Digital Installation, Wooden blocks, Sound: Hideaki Takahashi

Place connecting blocks on the table to create a city where trains, cars, and other vehicles run.
The same type of building blocks can connect to each other, and vehicles will start to run along roads, train tracks, and rivers between them. The vehicles will evolve through history as you connect more blocks.

City development and transport

  • Transporting crops and goods from town to town was extremely important for human progress. In the past, roads were built and transport was carried out by people and horses. However, rivers started being used by ships with more transporting power than horses to transport goods. Through the linking of towns by the river, each town developed. In more modern times, humans desired a newer transportation method, which is why they built railways for trains, and roads for cars to be driven on, connecting towns.
