Lecture—Carolyn Steel - The Hungry City

On Thursday 13 December 2012 we welcome the British architect Carolyn Steel for a lecture. She will talk about her book ‘Hungry City. How Food shapes our lives’. How do cities eat? How large is the influence of food on the lives of people? What is the impact – both social as physical – on us for feeding the cities and our planet? The book follows food’s journey from land to city, through market and supermarket, kitchen and table, waste-dump and back again, to show how food affects all our lives, and impacts on the planet.

Carolyn Steel will address the question we could use food to re-think cities in the future – to design them and their hinterlands better, and live a better life in these cities too. In the last chapter of the book which is called ‘Sitopia’ she states that the world is already shaped by food, so we might as well start using food again to shape the world more positively. Through ‘Sitopia’ she proposes a practical alternative for utopic plans with the same interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral approach.

The lecture takes place in the framework of the exhibition ‘The Ambition of the Territory – Flanders as Design’. In this exhibition a plea is made for a sustainable alternative for the compact city and endless sprawl. It is a search for instruments to draw and redraw the territory. The atelier ‘Flanders as Design’, which takes place at the same time in the exhibition space researches five different approaches to transform the Flemish territory: food, energy, dwelling, entrepreneurship and metropolitan territories.

Coproduction Sint-Lucas Antwerpen, Architecture Workroom Brussels and VAi/deSingel.

Thursday 13th of December 2012, 20h – 22h, Blauwe Zaal
deSingel Internationale Kunstencampus, Desguinlei 25, 2018 Antwerpen.
