Why countries must invest in tech and innovation to combat a global food crisis
An Israeli company has made the question redundant by achieving something remarkable. 'SuperMeat' has grown chicken in a laboratory, and they now plan to expand the process to a 'commercial scale'. SuperMeat is holding test meals for customers in a small restaurant in the Israeli town of Ness Ziona. The restaurant is aptly called the 'Chicken'. Diners here can devour the laboratory-grown chicken, produced without using genetic engineering or antibiotics. The process involves cultivating cells taken from a fertilised chicken egg. Cell cultures are fed a plant-based liquid including proteins, fats, sugars, minerals and vitamins.
A restaurant within an Art installation
A Hong Kong architecture studio has placed a restaurant within the jaw-dropping interiors of the Mile City brick art installation.The layout of the bar, and even the chairs and tables ebb and flow in response to the curves and meanderings of the structure and the unique and eye-catching openings in the roof.The building lacks even a single steel reinforcement or nail, and is built solely of local red bricks.Every view, every moment in the space is an interactive artwork, buffeting the senses, forming a wonderful symphony with the restaurant, enigmatically named 50% Cloud Artists Lounge
