In the coming weeks, I will be preparing an entry to the Urban Meal Mine Competition. This section is intended to show my process; as such, working drawings and diagrams will come online as I complete them. I can't wait to show you what happens!
COMPETITION ABSTRACT: Food is one of the most fundamental elements of human existence... As a designer how can you bring farming to the cities where people can see, participate or celebrate cultivation - and understand what they eat, much better? Where not only awareness related to food is available, but as a community we become more responsible for our actions. How can you change the image of cities as the ones that only consume, to ones that contribute too? Or make farming so easy for people using technologies of today that makes it easy for people to grow it in their homes? Urban meal mine(n), is a place where people can generate/learn/contribute to grow food for their city. This is usually located in the heart of the city where skilled labour + abundant transport + short distance logistics + faster production technologies can break even revenue over the high cost land it occupies.
