Break Out: FOOD! – Towards an all inclusive food region – IWT | Belén

May 9, 18:30 - 19:00

Currently we are experiencing a shift towards a new Megatrend (10-30 years), of sustainable, locally sourced biological ingredients. In these time of global climate change, how can we use technology to support our growing food- and spatial issues? Come think along!

Economies and societies are embedded parts of our biosphere. Food, and food production are at the core of our ecological surroundings. Currently we are experiencing a shift towards a new Megatrend (10-30 years), of sustainable, locally sourced biological ingredients.

How can we use technology to support and power a green revolution in our Dutch delta, integrating it with other global issues such as water management and coastal protection due to climate change? Can we create a food culture that is actually supporting its surroundings, instead of only taking away? Can we imagine a new food culture that stimulates more safety from rising sea levels, enrich our soils, stimulates biodiversity? Can we use our economic models to make a better world?

IWT is an architectural design office based in Rotterdam. We explore our changing surroundings, design spatial narratives and build architectural solutions for private, public and commercial clients.

Next to this, we have a restaurant, Belén, which explores the (im)possibilities of having an organic, locally sourced kitchen and its effects on its surroundings.
