Architecture studio Overtreders W embraces the movement for sustainability with this zero-waste restaurant barn. Entitled 'Brasserie 2050,' the eating establishment was arranged by catering company The Food Line Up for a festival that took place in late August in the Netherlands. The initiative boasted an eco-friendly approach to construction, as well as a sustainable menu. It was an exercise in imagining the world in 2050 with 10 billion in population.

The zero-waste restaurant served "bread baked from potato peelings and pesto made from kitchen leftovers." Although these food offerings might seem odd, if done right, they can lead the way in changing our perception of cooking. Moreover, Overtreders W chose a barn-style structure for the zero-waste restaurant because "a barn is a timeless icon for farming."
