Yet another 'greenhouse by joost' temporary restaurant has popped up in Australia, this time in The Rocks, Sydney. Like its forebear in Melbourne and its fixed home in Perth, the restaurant is a testament to thinking outside the proverbial box.

The building, which was built using broken down shipping containers and packing crates, is insulated with straw bales, collects its own water, recycles its own waste, grows its own herbs and vegetables in its rooftop garden. It also runs its generator using cooking oils. Even the light fittings, glasses and furniture are made from recycled, recyclable materials. Greenhouse designer Joost Bakker says the fully functioning temporary restaurant demonstrates that the technology needed to live more sustainably is available now.
