Now open in Sydney, Australia, is the waterfront Darling Island Wharf, offering event space that seats up to 800, a kitchen suitable for cooking demonstrations, several smaller meeting spaces and views of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The ecologically friendly building is built from concrete made of recycled products, insulated with materials made without ozone-depleting gases, and equipped with high-performance glass to minimize heat loss.
