The Social Practice Kitchen was built during the Fall semester of 2020, after the campus re-opened for hybrid learning. Since its completion, it has been utilized by different studio courses, events, and research projects. These include: biomaterial experimentation, 3D printed pasta explorations, candy casting workshops, and BYOM(ug) events where the Kitchen welcomed all in-person School of Design community members on a number of mornings with baked goods and a selection of tea. In mid-April 2021, Social Practice Kitchen will be a part of the Foundations Expanded project, activating public sites on Myrtle Avenue.
There has been a lot of excitement around the Kitchen, and we look forward to continuing to see it in use as a permanent resource in the School of Design.
