In 2015, we joined forces with Architecture 00. Together, we enjoy collaborating in a shared environment where strategic, urban and social designers, architects, programmers and economists practice design beyond its traditional borders. 00 work with individuals, governments, corporations and communities to solve problems and anticipate change, and to design successful platforms and places. As a studio it aims to reach beyond the design of objects themselves to the social, economic and environmental systems behind them.
Studio Weave have designed an outdoor kitchen at Newham City Farm.
The aim is to create a vibrant social focus for the farm - a space where anyone can come along and cook. The kitchen will have an educational purpose; it will provide a stage alongside the existing outdoor classroom where kids and parents can learn about healthy eating and cooking on a budget.
Newham City Farm offers a unique setting with hundreds of farm animals in 10 acres of sprawling farmland, and the gleaming towers of Canary Wharf looming behind. This project, along with another pilot site at Spitalfield’s City Farm, is intended as the first of many outdoor kitchens. The aim is that communities elsewhere will be able to choose their favourite design and fund their own outdoor kitchen.
