This Bridgeport Green Roof is Grinning at You

New, 1 comment

See that? It's the green roof atop the Chicago Sustainable Manufacturing Center in Bridgeport, better known as Bubbly Dynamics. And if you think you see a huge, out-of-focus face smiling back at you, you're not mistaken. A couple of years ago, developer John Edel announced that he would be arranging 9,600 sedum plants on the building's green roof to create a portrait of his six-month-old daughter, Zoe. Sometime over the summer, Google Maps' satellite images of Chicago were updated, showing the finished product. Voilà!
