The Ministry of Antiquities in Egypt has been working towards the creation of an undersea museum around ancient ruins submerged in the Bay of Alexandria. The plan began in 1998 and has run into a variety of obstacles, but project developers hope to move forward soon. With an architect on board and the people of Egypt hopeful to see the museum built, the project could be close to making tangible progress. The site might become the world’s first underwater museum, if the planners can overcome numerous project delays.

Caroline Choker wanted to retain as much of the industrial chic flavor of the original building as possible. As such, much of the original infrastructure such as wooden trusses and cement beams are left rough and exposed. Using concrete for the floor in the interest of simplicity in no way detracts from the ambience, though we question its environmental benefit, thanks to a series of thoughtfully-placed furnishings. Vintage equipment on display behind a black-framed glass case further savors the building’s quirky history. So much of what is wonderful about this sustainable renovation project lies outside! The Grounds serves only free-range eggs and grows much of their own produce on site. And you can be sure the food you eat there will nourish both body and soul. Gluten-free artisanal baked goods are available, and if you want your kids to have the skills necessary to produce such wholesome food for themselves down the line, send them over for some classes. This isn’t just a restaurant. This is home. + Caroline Choker + The Grounds Via Yatzer All photos © The Grounds of Alexandria

Riverpark’s Sicha Ortuzar with his rooftop farm celery I had heard a lot about the Riverpark Farm before I arrived at the rooftop farm above 430 East 29th Street near First Avenue in midtown Manhattan. The press release touted Riverpark Farm at Alexandria Center as New York City’s “most urban farm.” Quite a few farms have been sprouting up recently on rooftops and public spaces across NYC, so I was curious to see what made this 15,000 square-foot farm the “most urban,” aside from its location in the concrete jungle that is midtown Manhattan, near the infamous Bellevue Hospital. Riverpark Farm co-founders,… Read the full story on TreeHugger
