SHARPNESS FOOD CENTRE
Background: An individual project based in the industrial port village of Sharpness, Gloucestershire, England. The aim was to create an industrial building (loosely) that enabled public interaction.
Individual Brief: Sharpness Food Centre is a local food hub inspired by the food cycle stages (growth, consumption, and organic waste). The project is designed to reduce food miles, and therefore encourage the people of ‘Sharpness’ to buy and grow food locally. The site includes a cookery school, farmers market, allotments, vegetable garden and an orchard overlooking the canal-side promenade.
