Cafe Recipe–New Uses For Under Used Spaces

Creating  new uses for spaces that don’t live up to their potential is a big part of my MA design project so it has been important to research how others have approached the same task.

Below is the Cafe Recipe, A temporary installation by Teruhiro Yanagihara, designed for the Rokko Meets Art festival.

Users are encouraged to pick a selection of herbs from within the green house to create their own blend of tea. The piece becomes an exhibition or archive as, as each person creates a new blend it is recorded and displayed, to create a memory and potentially influence others when choosing their blend.

I love this idea! Turning a greenhouse into a cafe space is great and adding the interactive element would make it even more of an experience.
