Sitting in the kitchen and dining area on the second storey of the Future Food System is akin to an intimate dinner party at a friend’s home. It’s this immersive experience, tasting the culinary delights grown and prepared on-site, that invites a rethinking of how we can better live. Designed to provide nourishing food, shelter and energy, the Future Food System embodies a way of living conducive to our health – and the health of our planet.
The Future Food System is one of zero-waste pioneer Joost Bakker’s largest projects to date in collaboration with chefs Jo Barrett and Matt Stone. Situated in Melbourne’s Federation Square, the 87 square-metre, self-sustaining two-bedroom home manifests what we can achieve in an urban environment.
