When envisioning new ways of being, whether alone or together, we as architects and artists are in a unique position to create spaces that encourage interactions to further expand our understanding of one other. Simultaneously, as people we are experts in adapting to structures, barriers and norms. We carry with us these collected filters in our daily and professional lives, limiting the spectrum with whom we share space. When asking, ‘How will we live together?’, we might also ask,‘Who are We?’
A Meal offers a closer look at something deeply essential to our internal and built environment: the gathering around food. This program is an open invitation to come together, despite vast distances and barriers, to share space, time and personal experiences. Through conversations and individual explorations, A Meal will unfold the importance of the times we are in and the role they have in how we understand and relate to ourselves and to one other.
