In a world of virtual hyper connectivity, our disconnection with the cyclical system of food, meaningful interaction and affordability has led us to perpetuate an inequitable reality. Our consumption has become detached, where, incredible food waste is inevitable and food insecurity a serious reality.
So how can we provide a solution that links food consumption, waste and food insecurity within an affordable housing context? The proposed alternative to the current paradigm of disjointed, linear living is one of a cyclical nature. It is a proposal where consumption, waste, food production and interaction become one united, systemic identity. It aims to provide an avenue for affordable homes to generate their own food source in a social manner, hence creating a more circular economy where food security and a sense of purpose is at the forefront.
