A Recipe for Co-Production


This design-research project considers how the development of socially embedded, physical infrastructure may enable and encourage neighbourhood-scale collective cooking and eating in cities. In particular, it examines community co-production as a method of architectural design and a means of initiating networks of mutual aid. This proposal is emerging as a response to the endemic and related issues of food insecurity, food waste and social isolation.

The project examines how the provision physical infrastructure could help in tackling these endemic issues. More specifically, it hopes to understand how this infrastructure could be developed alongside a wider network of self-managed economies of mutual-aid and exchange. An important emphasis is placed on the co-production and community management of these proposed spaces. The research hopes to examine architecture’s role in building the conditions of possibility for people to develop resilient methods and networks of support for themselves.
