BLOCK is an info game i created in september 2012 for the exhibition "hitlerbauten in linz" at NORDICO museum (Linz).

the floor plan is an exact reproduction of the Harbachsiedlung, a neighbourhood built during the nazi-regime in linz, which represents the typical characteristics of this type of architecture: the rectangular shape of the building complex and the park that is situated in its middle.
for the game, the rectangular arrangement of building is used as the game-board. visitors walk from one field (=house) to the next, following the thematical paths laid out in the books that are related to each field. thereby they collect piece of a puzzle. all pieces put together will result in a QR-code that leads to the game's blog.

i created a predecessor to this game in june 2012, which is more directly inspired by the game monopoly and which can be played in situ at Spallerhof, another neighbourhood of linz.
