The model also includes a representation of the Javits Center’s 6.75 acre green roof, which Untapped Cities Insiders toured on a recent visit. Chief Engineer Rick Brown used the model to show the group the various spots of the roof we visited. The LEGO green roof is made up of 14,560 tiny plant pieces to mimic the sedum planted atop the convention center.
The Javits Center green roof installation was officially completed in October 2014 and measures 297,000 sf, which is the second largest green roof on a single, free-standing building in the U.S.
Great work by Brooklyn-based artist Sean Kenney and his team for creating this really cool model using LEGO!
