public orchard

2010

The project "Public Orchard" is a 1500 sq ft out door pavilion, created by RJD and The Studio for Urban Projects for the ZER01 2010 ?Out of the Garage, Into the World? exhibition, that explores the feasibility of public edible landscapes. The project asks how we reimagine and redesign our cities to allow them to become part of an urban foodshed? How we can make the planning of our cities more participatory, transparent, and reflective of the need for affordable and healthful food? What models, current, imagined, or historical would help us to understand future directions for food production in our cities? For the exhibition, the Studio will be constructing a park like architectural installation outside the North doors of South Hall. The installation will be a prototype for a new kind of public classroom and gathering space in an urban orchard. The space would be made up of heritage fruit trees, a horticultural reference and seed library, a community kitchen, and hands on workshop space. Conceived as an annex to our storefront space in San Francisco, it will be programmed with salons, hands-on workshops, talks, and be a departure point for a bus tour of local orchards.
