Signs of greening appear many other places in theNavy Yard. Atop one building,wind turbines spin;a rooftop farm grows upon another. Roadsides arelined with young trees, bike racks, and Lumi Solairstreetlamps, which light the grounds at night,powered by off-grid wind and solar energy. Apocket park features furnishings made of salvagedmaterials by Michelle Greene, a sculptor and furniture maker who works in the yard. She designed tables made out of ship doors and benches craftedwith window glass from a former Navy machineshop across the street. That machine shop and
two others are being transformed into the GreenManufacturing Center (GMC), a hub for modernresearch and industry slated for completion bythe end of 2014.
