Pop-up restaurant uses Olympics construction waste; recycled after three weeks

London designer Carmody Groarke borrowed materials—scaffolding, wooden planks, construction lamps, and translucent polyethylene—from one of London’s Olympic construction sites to build a pop up restaurant atop a parking garage. Studio East Dining offered views of Zaha Hadid's aquatic center, but disappeared after only three weeks, and then the entire restaurant was deconstructed and the materials were returned or recycled—no trace was left behind.
