Despite of the weather, the monumental Central Markethall of Amsterdam was crowded with over a thousand visitors, who came to enjoy everything the Food & Architecture Fair had to offer. Over a 120 participants provided delicious and honest food, tours, workshops, lectures, presentations and projects which presented the surprising connection between food & architecture. The past, the present and the future of the relationship between our food, our habitat and design came together in a remarkable, historical building in the center of Food Center Amsterdam. In the Zeepkistencafé, the delicious meals by My Table and the coffee by Hier en Daar combined with inspiring stories were a great succes. During different workshops, young and old was able to learn for themselves how food and architecture are related. Mediamatic baked fish, from their self-providing Aquaponic farm, with old fat transformed into biodiesel. The Architecture Day ended with the debate 'Growing food: Booming business?' where collaboration appeared to be the key for all innovations and developments concerning food and the city.
We would like to thank all visitors, participants and other collaborators for their amazing contribution to this tastefull day!
