Within the frame of Wienwoche 2013, the Austrian performance-collective wastecooking came up with a disruptive and uncommon proposal in opposition to the system of conventional supermarkets. It’s the wastecooking’s free supermarket, a food shop where everything is for free and anyone can enter. Under the motto “food is culture… don’t waste it, cook it”, the shop offered waste-diving tours in the neighbourhoods, a cooking campaign with food salvaged from the rubbish bin, a creative cooking device, tasty waste meals, performances and shelves of food, of course.

Taking inspiration from the roots of blues sound and its legends, the Roadhouse is the winding performance venue, conceived and built by the students from Morgan State University’s Bachelors of Science in Architecture and Environmental Design program, under the direction of professor Michael Zebrowski. Installed at Baltimore Artscape Festival, the project represents a good example of adaptive reuse, recycling wooden pallets and other discarded materials to create the streetscape and the stage for live concerts and dj sets.
