From ArchMedium we will like to propose the creation of a new restaurant concept that we have called “Maket Lab”. The Paris Maket Lab is a complex where kitchen is taken to a new level; not only in the way that dishes are prepared but also in the way the clients interact with it. The Market Lab acts as restaurant and cooking school at once, and it wants to be nothing less than one of the best in the world in both categories.
The world’s top chefs will be invited to lead one of the several cuisines of the complex over a limited period of time that might go from 2 to 12 months. During their stay these chefs will become mentors of a team of aspiring chefs, transmitting their knowledge to them, from the very basics of selecting raw materials out of the market to the smallest details of how every dish should be presented. During the day the Market Lab will work as a cooking school, becoming a five star restaurant during the night that will sever experimental recipes elaborated by the master chefs and their students.
The Market Lab will not accept reservations, nor will it count with a pre-established menu. The way to enjoy it will be as simple as getting there while free spots still last and wait to be served with a surprising, always changing, degustation menu.
