Foster + Partners just unveiled the first images of the pair of skyscrapers they’ve designed for San Francisco’s Transbay Terminal area. The two towers were designed in partnership with local firm Heller Manus Architects as part of the mixed-use First and Mission development. The 605-foot (185 meter) condominium tower will be the tallest residential project on the West Coast, and once completed the 850-foot (260-meter) residential, hotel and office tower will be second only in height to the Salesforce Tower, which is currently under construction nearby.

It was only a few days ago that McDonald’s Japan announced they were no longer going to import meat from China after the rotten meat scandal, and now they’ve gone one better. The fast food chain will be serving Tofu McNuggets made with onions, soybeans, carrots and minced fish. Served with a ginger-flavored sauce, the nuggets are available for the cool price of ¥249 ($2.44) for four pieces. A spokeswoman says the move is unrelated to the scandal, but we’ll let you draw your own conclusions.

Salvaged Beauty's On the Menu at San Fran's New Kusakabe Sushi Bar

Kusakabe is a new kaiseki-style sushi bar that has elevated sustainable building to a new level of elegance. Designed and constructed by ArcHive designbuild, located in San Francisco’s historic Jackson Square, the 31-seat restaurant has salvaged materials throughout its interior, from the 30-foot slab of solid elm that functions as the bar to the ceiling and walls, made of salvaged eucalyptus and bamboo plywood, respectively. Its interior is tranquil and bright, with the minimalism and clean lines that characterize Japanese design. The restaurant’s sophistication is also reflected in its menu: kaiseki is the Japanese equivalent of haute cuisine, and utilizes an extensive palette of colors, tastes, flavors, and cooking techniques.

DIY: Everything You Need to Know to Build a Simple Backyard Aquaponics System

by , 08/01/14

Aquaponics = aquaculture (the raising of edible fish) + hydroponics (growing vegetables and herbs without soil). You may have seen examples of this revolutionary way of growing food in some of the projects featured on Inhabitat. Per square foot, it’s the most productive form of agriculture on the planet, and is a perfect example of a living machine: a self-sufficient assembly of plants and animals that functions like an ecosystem, producing food for people without creating waste products or pollution.

Major Food Companies Quietly Ditch GMO Products

by , 08/01/14
filed under: News, Sustainable Food

It looks like the pariah status of GMO foods is slowly permeating beyond the natural health and eco-conscious crowd, to take its rightful place amongst major food companies that are quietly banning them from their products. According to an NPR report, some companies, like Ben and Jerry’s ice cream are very vocal about keeping their foods GMO free, placing it prominently on their labels and making it a selling feature for their products. Other companies are starting to follow suit but in a much more behind-the-scenes fashion. NPR reports that General Mills’ original plain Cheerios are now GMO free, but the only word anyone has heard about it was on a company blog post earlier this year. There isn’t even anything on the label that lets you know. Grape Nutsby Post is also free of GMOs while 80 of Target’s brand items are certified GMO-free.
