Workshop in collaboration with MUTINA
Searching For Food And Design Biodiversity
Project: Behind the great wall
by Kan Sivapuchpong, Kuei_Han Yang, Aprajita Sabhrwal, Hyeji Kwon
Conceiving both food and artisan craftsmanship as precious expression of cultural biodiversity, the project challenge the capability to envision new and contemporary micro-architectures for preparing and serving local food from different cultures in different locations across Milan, during the Expo period.
“Behind the great wall’” a project in collaboration with Mutina showcases the journey back to its roots. Authentic touches of exploration off the beaten path that are entirely integral with delving deeper into Chinese culture.
China, such a grey, grey city by day becomes a fairyland at night. Red lanterns swing in the breeze at every tiny restaurant. Eating is always a group affair, with large round tables a, some call it “family-style”, others call it “Chinese-style”. The vastness of Chinese art, culture and lifestyle can seem daunting. An exploration to navigate through, the weight of imperial and revolutionary history, and reinvent China as beguiling and seductive.
