Latino Culinary Academy

As an urban archeology proposition, the proposed design invigorates the dining experience by exposing layers of industrial history inherent in the building. Located in a historic vocational school surrounded by dramatic real estate flux, the culinary school presented the opportunity to develop a hybrid cuisine to be perfected at the restaurant. We envisioned the proposed dining hall, full bar and performance area would induce new levels of activity and engagement.
