For SHELTER, Shell has created a collection of individually upholstered giant building blocks and asks visitors to build their own Shelter. The 35 tetris-shaped building blocks can be laid-out or stacked high with the form, structure and element of privacy of each shelter determined by the builders themselves – an opportunity no self-respecting child of the 80’s could pass-up.
