“The way we grow, harvest, transport, sell and eat our food is the most destructive human activity on the planet” – Joost Bakker

Imagine solving the world’s biggest problem’s by simply changing the way we live. futurefoodsystem is attempting just that.

Joost Bakker’s long-awaited structure is now complete and you can see it for yourself smack bang in the middle of Fed Square’s River Terrace, complete with aquaponics, solar power, micro-farms, a charcoal tank and rooftop garden.

This holiday season futurefoodsystem has become home to celeb foodies Matt Stone and Jo Barrett as they move, for a few months’ stint, into this 100% sustainable modern urban farm, featuring vertical veggie gardens and mushroom walls, and other living inhabitants such as fish, crickets and worms.

The Residents

Award winning chefs Matt Stone and Jo Barrett will embark on a three month residence: growing, harvesting and cooking food sourced from inside the structure.

futurefoodsystem will host special guests, influencers, educators who will be encouraged to share their experience and learnings via social media.

The Ecosystem

futurefoodsystem is a self sustaining, closed loop, two-bedroom home that will shelter, feed and provide energy for its inhabitants.

The human driven system will mimic nature up-cycling what we currently regard as ‘waste’, in order to grow delicious, nutrient-dense produce.

The Concept

The concept has been designed to ensure all building processes and living systems are inclusive and openly available to the public:

  • Open source design
  • Building materials and manufacture
  • Community education
