Everything Old is New Again
A "new" concept in restaurants echoes a century-old design.
Building design, like many other disciplines, “reinvents” itself every decade or so. This take-out lunch spot in downtown San Francisco is a “new” concept in restaurants. All orders are processed via ipads, one’s food then magically appears behind a Plexiglass widow with your name on it. Looking back in history, Horn and Hardart Automats may have invented this popular form of restaurant in 1902. The updated version brings it into the 21st century.
