Attention, kiddies and big kids alike: Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson has deposited 2 million white Legos on the High Line and they’re ready for construction.

Just off of 30th St, rouse your inner eight-year-old by contributing your own designs to The Collectivity Project—an interactive installation that encourages visitors to build and rebuild imaginary cityscapes.

The intention behind this Lego-fest is to challenge New Yorkers to consider issues of urbanization, but let’s face it; you’re gonna go to relive the glory days of your youth.

A selection of architectural firms such as Bjarke Ingles Group and Renzo Piano Building Workshop stopped by to construct their own utopian structures (you can check out a few of their incredible creations below). They’ve already raised the bar, but with over two tons of Legos for crafting, anything is possible.

The exhibit will be open from 10am–7pm, May 29 to Sept 30, so make sure to stop by and check out all of the other cool things to do near the High Line this summer.
