Berlin Block Tetris

Today we dug up an oldie but goodie for you to brighten up your Friday. I always like to call Berlin a playground and this video by Sergej Hein pretty much materializes this sentiment about the city. In his little short film he recreated the classic Nintendo Gameboy game Tetris with Berlin’s typical “Neubaublock” buildings. It’s such a simple, yet effective idea and so fun to watch. It perfectly represents the development of the city in a way: It happens at first slowly and more considered, but also a little random and than more and more hectic with lots of wrong decisions until it ends in one strange big mess that has a couple of holes. I wonder if Hein foresaw some of the things that were going on in Berlin since he made this video 6 years ago. Enjoy it after the jump.
