Comments Off on Pop-up Befriending Kitchen unites refugees and asylum seekers in London

Merrett Houmøller Architects designed a pop-up kitchen that not only addresses social change, but is also a clever take on modular architecture with wheels. Created for RIBA’s Beyond Borders design competition, Befriending Kitchen was created to bring young asylum seekers and refugees together with weekly meals. Compact enough for mobile travel, the pop-up unit contains kitchen facilities as well as storage for folding tables and benches. Merrett Houmøller Architects’ Befriending Kitchen was born from the Refugees and Befriending Project, run by British Red Cross volunteers and staff. The new pop-up dining facility brings a colorful refresh to the project (previously run out of an office) and is decorated with bright graphics inspired by nautical signal flags. Related: IKEA’s SPACE10 lab is bringing a pop-up vertical farm to London Befriending Kitchen unpacks into two separate units that bookend a dining area made up of folding benches and tables seating up to 30 people. The kitchen facilities include a gas hob, sink, counter space, and trash disposal . The project is currently located in the courtyard of the British Red Cross’ Hackney destitution center in east London . + Merrett Houmøller Architects Via Dezeen Images © Francis Ware 2017

Comments Off on Mobile Gasfreundschaft is a Roving Kitchen That Offers Up a New Perspective on Public Space

Gasfreundschaft is a mobile hospitality cart and artpiece by designers Anna Rosinke and Maciej Chmara that speaks to the idea that public space like sidewalks may have many more functions that we might be aware of. Comprised a wheelbarrow kitchen, a table and ten folding stools, the roving space gives people the opportunity to travel from place to place to sit and eat or interact with passersby. The project took place in Vaduz, Dornbirn, Bregenz and Feldkirch, Austria in summer and autumn of 2011 and was initiated and supported by Art Design Feldkirch and Tschabrun Wood.

Comments Off on Colorado Wind Power Company to Compete With Fossil Fuel Prices

Image: Patrick Finnegan via flickr Boulder Wind Power has come up with a turbine design that it says can produce electricity at or below $0.04 per kilowatt-hour, allowing it to compete directly with fossil fuel-based power.
