Play the Food_Research

The overdeveloped cityscape and the pre-packed high street shop chains are dominating our food experience. Using a street market to investigate  the interactive relationship between fast trade, spatial organisation an it architectural typology in over saturated city.

From this research page, I will explore and interrogate the relationship between the idea of a micro-economy and an interactive spatial typology. I also explore the technological add-ons and imagine how our eating experience could be "authentic"

What is Food?

The seller starts to make a food directly after the customer place the order. There are several ingredients aligned in front of him so that he can choose his selection while looking the process.

So, the outcome of the salad wrap can be defined as "customized mixed ingredients wrapped in the tortilla".  

But here the problem, the customer does NOT interact with food much. They have to shout out their choice to the seller and this process takes time causing a long queue.

HOW CAN IT BE MORE EFFICIENT?
