The pitched LEGO Greenhouse is installed on Covent Garden’s NE Piazza facing James Street – the main entrance to one of the city’s most deluxe destinations. This is no mistake. Covent Garden plays a historical role as the West End’s original fruit and vegetable market – indeed many farmers and food sellers are there right now strutting their wholesome goodness as we go to press -something that the LEGO installation was designed to celebrate. Tonight, the fairytale greenhouse will be illuminated, and Inhabitat will be on the scene. Stay tuned for more images of one of Bergne’s most exciting projects to date.

Hi, Tafline I'm based in Port Elizabeth, South Africa. How would i be able to import these logo bricks? Please direct me, thanks,Conrad Martin
Will there be a do-it-yourself kit on sale any time soon & how much would it cost?
It is made of standard Lego parts.
These look like special, large lego bricks- not ones typically available to the consumer. Where they made just for this? It's really neat!
I am going to put in a question with the designer about the plastics. Regarding water, though, there is a nifty little door (you just can't see it.)
The LEGO is safe as it is designed as a Children's toy. As the builder of the green house, I built in an access point so the garden team can water the plants daily.
Not the first Lego greenhouse, I took this pic at Legoland Windsor in '06 and I'm sure it's not the first either! http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/828596465/in/set-72157600855303627 However its still very cool
rather more importantly - I can't see how the plants are going to be watered! (there must be a way surely! just not pictured?!)
Is there any concerns that toxic fumes could be given off by the legos and seep into the plants grown within it? I know some plastics are harmful when heated.
