Come Rain Or Come Shine

We LOVE Antto Melasniemi. He’s a true individual. Who else would bring a solar-powered kitchen? To Leeds? In September? ¬†Our overseas finalist, all the way from Helsinki, came up with the idea as an environmental and gastronomic art project designed to highlight key contemporary themes: a nature-driven process, flexibility and immediacy. Depending on the sun, the nature-driven kitchen could be serving up a solar barbecue — or a salad. So Antto will also be testing people’s flexibility. If it rains, we’ll all have to adapt. Are you up for it?
