The LEGO Flood House

Meet the LEGO Flood House set, a new innovative tool for engaging communities on flood resilience interventions.

 

A pair of terrace houses are shown, one that is vulnerable and damaged by the flood water and the other that is flood resilient. The home that is resilient has a variety of elements that help make the house more flood resistant and recoverable. Flood resilience measures are shown in yellow in the set to make it clear which elements are helping to change the consequences the family and their home endures.

 

The project needs 10,000 supporters on the LEGO Ideas platform to be considered to be made into an official kit that could be purchased in shops. The perfect solution for mainstreaming PFR that is fun, engaging and understood by all whilst also being scalable, easy to use, low cost and easily transportable for FCERM professionals and projects.

Get ready to build, play, and conquer floods with the LEGO Flood House set – because together, we can weather any storm!

The LEGO Flood House set has been developed and proposed by Blue Heart and The Environmental Design Studio, as part of the Flood and Coastal Resilience Innovation Programme.
