Designing Cities for Food

Nicola Twilley and Sarah Rich are launching a project called Foodprint NYC with the goal of creating a comprehensive vision for a food policy for New York. Urban Omnibus has this interview.

For me, food is an incredibly powerful tool for connecting seemingly disparate issues. It is a magical lens that allows you to see the landscape in a different way. I was also inspired by the book Hungry City by Carolyn Steel. Her core argument is that food is basically a design tool. If you design for food and food systems, you will inevitably address all considerations needed to create a sustainable, workable community. It was a revelation to me."
