"In Madrid’s Plaza de Las Letras (a small, inconspicuous space next to the strange new architecture of the Caixa Forum, and across the street from the old Prado Museum) you can now play Tetris on a giant scale. It’s kind of a combination of public art and computer game. You use your own body to control the pieces. Players run back and forth and their movement controls the movement of the pieces on the screen. Players have to work in pairs: One person runs back and forth to move the pieces side-to-side; the movement of the other controls the rotation of the pieces.

LummoBlocks was developed in the OpenUp workshop of MediaLab Prado. Their description of the project, roughly translated, is:
On Friday evenings come to the Plaza de las Letras to play LummoBlocks. Look for a partner and work together with him to rotate and move around the pieces until you put them in the right place. The blocks will follow your movement across the length and width of the plaza, thus creating an interaction between the passersby and the public space of the plaza.
LummoBlocks is inspired by the legendary game “Tetris” and designed to create interaction between people and the public space that uses the façade to visualize the game. The mechanics are similar to those of “Tetris”: the players should eliminate the greatest number of lines possible to prevent the pieces from reaching the upper part of the façade. The objective is to create an experience based in the playful interaction with the space."
