the greenhouse by joost

This amazing pop-up event venue and cafe, called 'The Greenhouse by Joost', is a temporary but salient reminder of what can be done with waste. The structure was created on site in 14 days, from hay bales and deconstructed shipping containers. For a short time you can sit on chairs made from used street signs, and eat food grown locally in Joost's family's greenhouses, then the whole thing will be hauled over to the Milan Furniture Fair. I really wish I lived in Melbourne. Or that Joost was single. Or both. (For the record, I am a happily married woman.)

From Vogue Living Australia (jan/Feb 09). I apologize for the general crappiness of these images. No scanner, only digital camera - that's no excuse though.
