primary & secondary research:

Urban lifestyles lack connection to food on nutrition and geographic levels. Can design offer a platform for closer connection to our food that is applicable to an array of urban contexts?
 

  • Must be applicable to all income levels and neighborhoods
  • Model must adapt to diverse urban contexts



  • Playshop – participants responded to prompts  about their relationships with food 
  • Desk research – uncovering links between healthy  decision making and community involvement and support
 
 

outcomes:

 

curated
communal tables:

An adaptable tabletop within different urban contexts with community-developed art and food information intended to initiate conversations about systemic effects our food system creates. Information including production, distribution, culture, nutrition and beyond.
