Greenhouse by Joost in Sydney

We managed to get a weekend afternoon to ourselves recently, so took the opportunity to take in the amazing Annie Liebovitz exhibition at the Sydney Museum of Contemporary Art. It was inspiring, touching and a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.

On the stroll back through the drizzle, we decided to check out the Greenhouse by Joost pop-up restaurant on it's last day.

I knew it was a great concept (sustainable, fresh food in an eco-friendly makeshift temporary restaurant on the harbour), but was taken back by how gloriously perfect the structure was, perched in a quiet spot next to the Overseas Passenger Terminal. The edgy shape, the eye-popping colour, the sweet David Bromley artwork, the wall made entirely of strawberry pot plants, the truly amazing view and the small footprint made it an really exciting piece of architecture.

There was an umbrella-carrying line right out the door for service on the last day, so we didn't get to try the goods inside. But I've heard rumours that the pop-up restaurant may come back to stay later this year; let's keep our fingers (and toes) firmly crossed.
