Students were asked to conduct field research in specific food production and distribution examples and then redesign these systems to incorporate greater social, economic, cultural and environmental sustainability outcomes. The Meals in Metropolis exhibition illustrates a selection of the outcomes of this course and reveals that our food future may not be so bleak after all…
