Neighbour-Food Hub (2016)
This project aims to bridge neighbourhood identities, offering an opportunity for diverse individuals, through food production and consumption, to cross pollinate on a more meaningful level.
Demographically informed intervention
The border between Inwood and Marble-Hill are homes to 77,000 citizens, of which consist of a wide range of users. Initial research regarding the users of the site led to the subsequent development of 6 urban design strategies; resulting with a demographically informed architecture intervention. These 6 design strategies subvert the underutilisation of the abundant nature and water edges, in order to connect communities that were becoming increasingly alienated.
The programmatic insertion of a food destination provides opportunities for collaborative efforts between communities, such as through the buying and selling of local produce, cultivating from a community garden and the sharing and experiencing of performance art.
