Meet Urban Algae Folly, the world's first living edible architecture: Integrating micro-algae cultures and real-time digital cultivation designed to produce protein.
It might look like something from out of space but this is the system designed by ecoLogic Studio to produce 35g of Chlorella every day - or the protein equivalent of 750 grams of meat per day.
In just 6 months, the folly can produce the same amount of protein as a small cow, which, according to the designers, is sufficient to feed four people in that same amount of time. And it doesn't end there, the folly is also absorbs sufficient CO2 per day to produce enough oxygen to sustain a human being for the day.
Currently stationed in the street in Braga, in Portugal, the Folly enjoys the sun's rays to synthesise a daily amount of chlorella and reacts with both the climate and interested passers by.
Could this be the future of food, fields full of futuristic follys instead of our four hooved friends?
Dameon Evers is an African-American chef who went from cooking at an airport Chili's, to heading up a Michelin-starred French kitchen, learning from some of the biggest names in gastronomy along the way. Here he tells us his inspiring story.
Geranium's Rasmus Kofoed has decided to stop serving meat at the restaurant currently ranked number two on the World's 50 Best Restaurants list. But the Danish chef isn't yet willing to go purely plant-based.
