Inspired by the strong presence of organic and locally grown foods in Austria, Precht and Daxb&ouml;ck took a creatively literal and communal approach to the 2015 Expo's universal theme "Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life."</p></em><br /><br /><p> <em>Visitors are the true designers of the pavilion as they plant seeds of fruits, vegetables, or herbs in the gaps of its timber exterior during the summer months of the Expo. Once the crops are fully grown, they'll be harvested and cooked into traditional Austrian dishes in the pavilion's restaurant. In essence, visitors get to eat their design.</em></p> http://archinect.com/news/article/84232520/the-o-bridge-proposal-by-chris-precht-and-alex-daxb-ck-for-salford-meadows-bridge-competition The “O” bridge proposal by Chris Precht and Alex Daxböck for Salford Meadows Bridge Competition Justine Testado 2013-10-15T18:44:00-04:00 >2013-10-22T16:46:27-04:00 <img src="http://cdn.archinect.net/images/514x/bu/buch68skt1v4j9to.jpg" width="514" height="323" border="0" title="" alt="" /><em><p>Chris Precht of penda / Vienna and Alex Daxb&ouml;ck sent us their recent project titled the "O", an elliptically shaped bridge proposal for the RIBA-sponsored Salford Meadows Bridge International Design Competition.
