From Canteen to Pasture
Workshop, June 2023
Architecture Department ETH Zurich with the participation of the Chair Caruso and Roots & friends (Even GmbH)
Institutional canteens in the field of education are used in peek times for only a few hours a day. Their usage falls short of their potential capacity despite the important role that canteens play in fostering a sense of community and connection.
We see a chance for students to engage more intensively with these spaces as users as well as workers, “behind the scenes and on stage”.
