FLAVOUR COLLAGE - EDIBLE NEUBAU
A temporary cooking club
Inspired by Food City by Haus-Rucker-Co, Edible Neubau was a temporary cooking club which aimed to bring issues in the urban sphere to public attention. The food workshops allowed a diverse group of citizens to come together and explore the multicultural landscape of Vienna through flavour variations in jelly & chocolate. The daily edible architecture took the form of a scale-model of Vienna’s 7th District and could be tasted and enjoyed by both the makers and visitors of the Vienna Design Week.
The most effective way to structure design around the needs of a community, is to begin with a conversation. Exploring the idea of food, cooking and eating together, this project was a vehicle for creative collaboration, whilst testing a method for active and impactful participation. Engaging the public in a dialogue around urban structures, city dynamics and cultural diversity, leads to continuous conversations bringing more effective insights to policy-makers, developers and architects.
