Posted in Models by Ferne Edwards on November 24th, 2008
What: An Australian first in sustainable design and innovation, by visiting the Greenhouse by Joost, a temporary exhibition over the Spring and Summer period of 2008|09. Its built entirely from recycled and recyclable materials.
When: 7am to 11pm daily, ’til 29th January 2009
Where: Federation Square, next door to ACMI, Flinders Street, Melbourne
The Greenhouse, a self-sustaining event venue will rise from the ground of Federation Square for three months only will dish up degustation fare – in part dug from the garden of its own roof-top space – in a structure designed entirely from detritus. Tiny â€˜taste-tubes (science laboratory ware is just some of the discard to double as dishes) will be served by vintage-dressed waiters wheeling â€˜de-registered shopping trolleys around furniture made from found â€˜stuff.
Think local, act local is the imperative of this â€˜waste of a space project that is the brain-child of one man who, having made a lifes work of trash, will show how simply it turns into treasureâ€¦.with minimal cost to pocket and no cost to the planet.
