This gallery exhibit in Seattle has much in common with the two young entrepreneurs who launched the successful Back to the Roots mushroom growing kit business. They are both growing mushrooms in coffee grounds.
It looks like we have local mushrooms and lettuce covered. Ever onward!
Olson Kundig Architects’ [storefront], Seattle’s homegrown gallery for urban experimentation, has been overhauled once again. Last month, it was a music lover’s haven, rekindling the cultural narratives of the world’s fast-disappearing record stores by inviting visitors to browse through neatly filed vinyl collections and stage listening parties. Their latest experiment takes advantage of the city’s thriving coffee culture, taking the form of an indoor mushroom farm nourished by nutrient-rich coffee grounds salvaged by local baristas.
