On a recent trip to Seattle, we got to sneak into a private dinner catered in the [Storefront] Project Space of ace architecture firm Olson Kundig. The firm gives over its ground-level space near Pioneer Square to one-off projects perceived to have social value. In this case, the project was an urban mushroom farm envisioned by CityLab7. The dinner was a tasty affair handled by Michael Easton of Il Corvo Pasta, featuring fresh oyster mushrooms harvested straight out of the mushroom farm. Local coffee shops have been donating coffee grounds which are then packed into bricks and populated with spoors. A structure made with design help from Olson Kundig provides the proper heat and humidity for the mushrooms to grow. Dinner with CityLab7 representative Gabriela Frank and a bunch of savvy Seattleites was awesome–but the best part was the project space and its ongoing mission. Hint, Santa Fe, big hint.
