NewSchool of Architecture and Design (http://www.newschoolarch.edu/) second year student Jonathan Chau created a unique sushi food cart as part of his architecture design studio.
What does a food cart have to do with design? A design studio class at NewSchool of Architecture and Design (NSAD) headed by instructor Hector Perez explored the unusual typology of human-propelled food carts. These are smaller carts that vendors sell food from -- not to be confused with food trucks. The project was done in collaboration with another NSAD design studio lead by NSAD instructor Casey Mahon that explored digital manipulations of surface. The integrated assignments challenged the students (in their second year of studies in NSAD's Bachelor of Architecture program) to explore the interaction possibilities of food carts in a parking lot near San Diego's downtown ball park. The hypothetical scenario - in which sections of the parking lot could be designated as spaces for the food carts during tailgating events - encouraged students to evaluate the relationships between sites and projects (the parking lot) and social dynamics (the tailgating scene). Such explorations of function, scale and site form the basis of any architecture or design project, and allows students to develop skills they can use in the future for projects as small as a food cart and as large as a skyscraper.
