LEGO has commissioned Sebastian Bergne to create a public installation using their iconic bricks as part of the London Design Festival 2011.’LEGO greenhouse’ is an actual functioning greenhouse, whose walls, floors and earth are entirely built from the iconic building bricks, contrasting the live plants and vegetables growing within.
Sebastian Bergne says: ‘Its pitched roof references reflect the architecture that surrounds it, while the plants inside bring nature back to this area once famous for its garden trade. In daylight, the structure looks very much like an ordinary suburban greenhouse dropped into a new environment. Yet at night, it assumes another character entirely. It is transformed into a magical box, glowing and lit it seems, by the life of the plants it contains.’
