A School of Culinary Design for Alexandria
The need for a space for the community to gather and the underutilization of the waterfront led to the design of a public space for Alexandria. A school of culinary design was chosen to elevate the current situation of the site by supporting the open space and giving back to the community.
The culinary school served as a vessel to explore the truthfulness of materials and structure, and the aesthetics of the unfinished. The design of the culinary school conveys the story of its making by revealing the structural elements and not covering them with unnecessary finishes. The materials used in the design are true to their nature.
The project serves as a place to create culinary art and to express the spirit of the architecture.
