How Food Shapes Our Cities – Carolyn Steel

September 24 2010 - 3:41 PM

What does architect Carolyn Steel know about food? Here's her focus and her TED talk.

The question of how to feed cities may be one of the biggest
contemporary questions, yet it's never asked: we take for granted that
if we walk into a store or a restaurant, food will be there, magically coming from somewhere.
Yet, think of it this way: just in London, every single day, 30 million
meals must be provided. Without a reliable food supply, even the most
modern city would collapse quickly. And most people today eat food of
whose provenance they are unaware.
