Brawn & Bread is an outdoor gym that makes bread, using human power to process the grain, knead dough, and fuel a wood-fired oven. The project was designed by UK designers Studio MICAT and was built by campers, aged 11-17, at Beam Camp, New Hampshire.

The structure is designed to make a performance of the processes that go into producing a loaf of bread. It is a permanent installation at Beam Camp where it will provide daily bread for up to 150 campers and staff members. The bread gym is a small but salutary reminder of the effort required to produce this daily essential.

Beam Camp is a program of Beam Center, a Brooklyn-based not-for-profit that uses old and new tools, technologies, and craft to honour the individual voice, celebrate the joy of producing something larger than ourselves, and inspire lasting wonder. Their programs support youth to take bold steps towards personally meaningful futures and foster conditions for educational equity.
