MSA Stage 3 School of Architecture

This project aims to develop architectural concepts for an Urban Food Exchange (UFEx). The UFEx is a place where hand, mind, and spirit come together to accomplish the long-term goal of sustainable urban food production and distribution to meet the city’s nutritional needs. It brings people together from near and far who are eager to learn the skills and knowledge involved to achieve the art of producing, cooking, and living on a healthy diet. The function of the project is going to be three separate buildings. The Hub is for food production, a workshop, and a learning kitchen. The Assembly is used as a gathering space, food consumption, indoor market, community functions with some classrooms, and a study area. The House will accommodate a max of 20 people to live and study.
