LIU Green Center
The LIU gives back to its citizens...at least the rich ones.
About this creation
LIU Green Center


Plants are scarce in the Ludgonian Industrial Union's ever expanding mega-cities. The few plants that remain are enclosed in small parks that are unfortunately open to the public. When the LIU Governors and other elite citizens were forced to mingle with the lower classes, trouble arose. To ease the concern of the elite, the LIU built the LIU Green Center.




The LIU Green Center is a four story building with three floors of greenhouses. Within its walls, the elite can enjoy the greenery in peace.








Besides pleasing the rich, the Green Center is also an important conservation center. Rare or endangered plants were placed inside.








Windows allow natural light to hit the plants. A skylight graces the roof.





A LIU Governor and his trophy wife descend the stairs after a day of plant gazing. Gazing, not grazing...Anyhow, let's move inside.








The first floor of the Green Center is dedicated to rare flowers.









Plant fact #1: If you've visited some of our farm products, you know the LIU has had problems with the Lava Flower Weed. It's an invasive weed that destroys crops. Because the weed has red flowers, many other plants with red flowers have been destroyed out of fear. Therefore red flowers are rare.







The second floor is dedicated to small plants and trees. It has three exhibits.









To the left, two of the elite check out some mini-evergreens. This particular species no longer exists in the wild. Note the small monitor that plays the same annoying informational video over and over and over.







Is it really that exciting to look at shrubs? It is.










A view through the window shows two officers checking out a flowering bush. Don't tell their friends...it could lead to some nasty hazing.








The third and largest floor is a small simulation of a forest. Two trees and some larger plants are the main attractions.








A small trail leads through forest to allow guests to get a better view.








Why is their a dead stump in the middle of the fake forest? Couldn't that space be utilized for a plant that is, well..., alive? Hmm, we didn't really think about it until we wrote this caption, and we aren't sure.







Some more views of the forest.








Like we said above, if you were actually reading, there are four floors. The fourth floor is the basement. Its a botanical research center.







This scientist carefully clones an extinct species of grass. It grows in the chamber to his right.








This scientist is working on a machine that could simulate natural sun more accurately. It could also be used for tanning.








A computer catalogue of endangered plants is updated by this scientist.









Dangerous plants are grown and studied in the basement's isolation chamber. Here, a scientist studies some flesh eating sea grass. His partner accidently stepped into the chamber and was stripped to the bone.






Note: How do you know if you are elite enough to visit the Green Center? If you have to ask, don't bother trying to come...

And why should we care about the unwashed masses who are not rich enough to be afforded the opportunity to see such fine treasures? They are not cultured, sofisticated, educated or rich enough to... oh, I can't be bothered anymore... Jeeves, Type for me. Yes sir, My esteemed employer no longer has any use for the down trodden. He will be viewing the shrubbery and then attending the governers ball. ~ Jeeves, Chris' Butler.

A chilling vision of things to come: thank you! The greenery contrasts nicely with the start white, air conditioned, temperature controlled world of the LIU. And social commentry just the way I like it: caustic!

Sweet, does the LIU make any money off this? I'm sure it does, probably and entrance fee or something... I mean, if there was no money involved, it wouldn't be classic LIU...

Very cool and very clever. You should make a Kadu Farm, that would be interesting

What! No water feature? Ah, but let's not get everyone spoiled now. I mean a little greenery is one thing, but fresh air and water would, I think, just be waaaaay too much! Nice to know the LIU has a soft spot, anywho. Good job!!

Yet another fine build. The entrance and the planters at the front of the building would be my favourite element. Lee.
