Kickstarter's New Green Headquaters Underway

Ahh, for once I get to talk about a "green" building that I can actually show you pictures of that aren't photoshopped! Kickstarter has been hard at work the last few months having a new headquarters built in Brooklyn, NY. Complete with a green roof, covered in trees and the like. Using the now abandoned Eberhard Faber Pencil Co. factory, Kickstarter enlisted the help of Ole Sondresen Architects to make their new headquarters a reality.

The building is still much a work in progress, the facade hasn't been tackled yet, but the inside as well as the roof are definitely coming along. In the photos here they only have about a handful of trees up, but hey, this is way more progress than some other 'living' buildings that I've read about in the last few months. It may only be 9 trees, but it's exciting to actually see this being done, and it will be great to see how it all turns out!
