[AC-CA] team shares with us the info for their latest project the Gourmet Street Food [BERLIN] Competition. The seemingly light design task becomes increasingly harder considering its prestige location. The project with a notion of contemporary architecture is to be shaped for the center of Berlin.
Discover the detailed design brief from [AC-CA] after the jump:
Gourmet Street food refers to highest quality and excellent flavored balanced meals, prepared well with good ingredients and somtimes quirky and a twist or new offering from the norm but with quick turnaround served on the street or outside the restaturants environment in special trucks or temporary and sometimes mobile food cabins.
AIM OF THIS COMPETITION
The aim of this International Competition is to design a Gourmet Street Food structure in the heart of the city of Berlin. The architecture of this new temporary structure or vessel should reflect contemporary design tendencies in its provision of an architectural solution to the current gourmet street food scene. The proposal must not only attend to the specific function but also take into consideration the urban context and impact. This competition hopes to achieve the following:
Encourage and reward design excellence at a small scale which integrates function, structure and details.
Research, respond to and highlight the unique aspects of designing a temporary self-support and possibly a mobile structure.
To generate the discussion of ideas regarding the relation between Architecture and the new Gourmet Street Food trend.
Encourage the employment of sustainable design in all aspects of the proposal.
