LEGO UK commissioned London-based designer, Sebastian Bergne, to create a fully functional LEGO greenhouse as part of the London Design Festival 2011. While the walls and floor are entirely made of LEGO bricks, the plants and vegetables growing inside are entirely real.
LEGO Greenhouse 1 of 4The greenhouse draws inspiration from Covent Garden's history as London's original fruit and vegetables market.
LEGO Greenhouse 2 of 4The greenhouse is located outside the iconic Market Building in the North Piazza, directly facing James Street.
LEGO Greenhouse 3 of 4The greenhouse is the work of industrial designer Sebastian Bergne, who has run his own design studio in London for 20 years.
LEGO Greenhouse 4 of 4The greenhouse will be on view from Sept. 15 through 25, as part of the London Design Festival 2011.
