John Buxbaum was strolling through the streets of Chiang Mai Thailand one day when he noticed a huge pile of cardboard boxes and tape.
He wasn’t the only passerby who was interested in this unusual collection of cardboard
Buxbaum soon realized that onlookers were being encouraged to help build something
With so many helping hands, the boxes quickly started assuming a recognizable shape
It turned out, this art project was the brainchild of a Frenchman named Olivier Grossetête.
This is part of a series he’s been working on for a few years all around the world—allowing people to experience building something cool, even if it’s only out of cardboard
In a little more than a day, and with the help of anyone that wanted to join in, a stack of regular ole boxes was turned into this!
“They encouraged passersby to get involved, which for me was the cool part,” said Buxbaum
John Buxbaum had no idea that he’d be helping to erect a temple when he set out to grab a bite to eat, but thanks to Olivier Grossetête, he got to join in this enriching and community-building experience!
