Additional Information

Contemporary eating space is in flux, and the dining room has been rendered all but obsolete. People eat in their beds, phone in one hand, fork in the other, eyes on a laptop screen tabbed to Netflix. What is social dining? Is it a place? It is a piece of furniture? Is it an idea? Is it an observation? If the dining table is obsolete, then what takes its place? Certainly not another dining table. Or does it?

Stemming from my architectural interests in food, event, the domestic scale, and the creative nonfiction writing genre, this thesis contends to narrate an architecture that observes and responds to a particular set of, as Tschumi would call them, "contemporary circumstances and the media processes that accompany them": the social dining event.
