Floating, sustainable café. In situ produce and local markets, that foster culinary sense of place.
1/5

Solution

Aeolia is the name of the  floating island in Homer's Odyssey.  It is the design’s evolution of the TOTAL T’Air concept, whereby the space is terre in the air.

 

Floating islands have historically been the architectonic stereotype of sustainability and technological advancement. This design marries these identifiable markers with the needs of the locale and their residents.

 

The Aeolia is a multi-faceted hub, encompassing commerce and social interaction. The local need for social interaction is housed in the space and turned into commerce from sales of sustainable, locally grown produce, and collaboration with local markets.

 

As such, the design is a holistic reflection of the people, their sense of place and locality in space-time, as “You Are What You Eat”.
