Call Number: UCF Rosen General Collection -- NK2195.R4 E3 2010
Restaurant designs and food concepts that are driving current trends in interior design and architecture to new heights.
Call Number: UCF Rosen General Collection -- TX355.5 .E28 2004
The contributors to this highly original collection of essays explore the relationship between food and architecture, asking what can be learned by examining the (often metaphorical) intersection of the preparation of meals and the production of space. In a culture that includes the Food Channel and the knife-juggling chefs of Benihana, food has become not only an obsession but an alternative art form. The nineteen essays and Gallery of Recipes in Eating Architecture seize this moment to investigate how art and architecture engage issues of identity, ideology, conviviality, memory and loss that cookery evokes. This is a book for all those who opt for the combination platter of cultural inquiry as well as for the readers of M. F. K. Fisher and Ruth Reichl. The essays are organised into four sections that lead the reader from the landscape to the kitchen, the table, and, finally, the mouth. The essays in Place Settings examine the relationships between food and location that arise in culinary colonialism, and the global economy of tourism. aesthetic experimentation, including an examination of gingerbread houses as art, food and architectural space. The essays in Table Rules consider the spatial and performative aspects of eating and the ways in which shared meals are among the most perishable and preserved cultural artefacts. Finally, Embodied Taste considers the sensual apprehension of food and what it means to consume a work of art. The Gallery of Recipes contains images by contemporary architects on the subject of eating architecture.
