LEGO Greenhouse

For London Design Week 2011, designer Sebastian Bergne created a functioning greenhouse built entirely from LEGO bricks. The walls, the floors, even the earth is made of LEGO, however the plants and vegetables growing inside are real. Sebastian explains, "what instinctively appealed to me, was that I would finally have the chance to live out a childhood dream and build something huge and usable out of LEGO. as with the majority of my work, I enjoy taking a material or process and pushing the boundary of what can be done with it. this time we have created an interesting juxtaposition of a natural environment growing in an almost digital, mass-produced LEGO structure, and it makes you look at LEGO in a new way,"
