Description/Abstract

T

he contention of this thesis

is that architecture designed

for consumption currently

contributes to distancing

consumers from a relationship

with food (speci

fi cally looking at

beef) by emphasizing commercial

attitudes and commodities and

failing to participate in earlier

production and processing phases.

If architecture and spatial or visual

relationships have the ability to

entice through masking, then

there must be potential for design

throughout the food chain- from

farm to fork- with the agency to

do the opposite: contribute to a

more transparent food system and

perhaps even more sustainable

alternatives. With increasing

demand for a transparent

food system by concerned consumers,

architecture can respond to that demand in

some capacity.

Thus far, the project has undergone two

progressive phases with the goal of creating

a narrative that subversively exposes and

critiques the conventional food system

and challenges of recently proposed

alternatives which may ultimately lead to the

implementation of new alternatives.
