Good Food is a 30,000+ square foot, multi-purpose project focused on promoting the interaction between sustainable food production and performative architectural spaces. The diverse program includes gardens, galleries, research spaces, classrooms, a lecture and performance hall, and cooking and eating spaces.
Corollary to the theme of integration, the program was first divided into typologies, and then reorganized to promote interaction between visitors. The programmatic volumes are staggered and stacked to create visuospatial connection within the building. A dual-skin system is employed, creating a habitable zone between.
INTERIOR SKIN DETAIL
Active phytoremediation green-walls provides passive air filtration while growing organic produce in a controlled yet architecturally performative condition.
EXTERIOR SKIN DETAIL
Opaque and transparent glazing, and controllable apertures allow for diverse light diffusion as well as active and passive climate control.
The resulting structure is both solid and free, with volumetric spaces slotted within a structural steel frame, and the dual-skin system running around and within various programmatic spaces.
