Today, we’re taking you out for lunch with Brazilian artist Jorge Menna Barreto. The café within the pavilion that houses the 32nd São Paulo Biennial in Brazil is no ordinary eatery. The artist created Restauro, or Restoration, in partnership with local chefs and farmers to encourage awareness about the way we use our land and the global consequences of how we eat. The farming practice behind this project is agro-forestry, the simultaneous cultivation of crops and trees. Jorge Menna Barreto’s entire project is an inspiring environmental sculpture!
