From Canteen to Pasture

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”.
