Pricing: $130/person

Join us for a re-imagined workshop: an interpersonal opportunity for broad thinking and creative co-speculation on the “practice” of an integrative design charrette. Begin your “unConference”: chopping, kneading, grating, folding, and mixing. Expect to be immersed in a sensory exercise of smells, flavors, textures, patterns. Expect to laugh, to toast, to discover, to dig a little deeper. All we ask, is a willingness to be moved. This edible engagement will be contemplative, companionable, and nourishing.

We will gather at Upper Bar Ferd’nand for a shared meal hosted by Jennifer Preston and James Wilson of BKSK Architects with Tristan Roberts of BuildingGreen, and James Beard Award-winning chef Matt Dillon. We will prepare together, locally foraged and grown ingredients and explore the Danish sense of hygge [hew-guh] - a readiness to be affected by the world around you. It will be personal, communal, consequential. We invite your enthusiastic and earnest participation.

This event has been pre-approved for 3 AIA CE's.
