1024 Architecture have launched a temporary restaurant/bar/open-air café positioned on Île Seguin in the middle of a temporary garden while Jean Nouvel’s macro project is being implemented.
The project is an architectural hybridization between an agricultural greenhouse, a barge and a timber-frame house. Modelled after a large wood fibre box suspended in a scaffold structure from which freight containers are hanging, all encompassed beneath a transparent umbrella...

Temporary dining venues seem to be taking over the design world. This last month we saw Ridley's in London working with similar ideas.
