Gardening may be tough for me, but for designer Sebastian Bergne, it’s child’s play. Literally. Behold this fully-functional greenhouse he constructed from LEGO bricks!

Bergne was tasked by LEGO UK to assemble the hothouse for the 2011 London Design Festival, and though it took an astounding number (approximately 100,000!) of translucent and brown blocks, it has me wondering if I could build a box for some veggies and flowers. Hmm. Perhaps I’ll just try a store-bought terrarium first. Still can’t believe your eyes? Check out Inhabitat for more cool shots of the structure.

    How cool! I wonder how big you could actually make that thing. I guess for a backyard you would really need something more substantial than LEGOS, but the idea is nice for a table top. It would be a fun way to get a kid interested in plants and gardening. <a href="http://www.greatgardenguru.com” target=”_blank”>www.greatgardenguru.com

    I would imagine that it costs more to build this greenhouse of Legos than it would to build a greenhouse of REAL materials. But it would be fun to try to say the least.
