Lane Tech Cafeteria Design

Project Type: Competition
Location: Roscoe Village, Chicago
Year: Fall 2011

Project Brief: The objective was to redesign the traditional cafeteria at our school to support new ideas. I incorporate a learning component to educate students to farming and where food comes from. It also uses sustainable practices to encourage students to be aware of their food habits. I provide more seating because there is clearly not enough seating in my school for 4,000 students at a time and also the hallways get packed because of lunch periods. My design relieves that congestion and offers a new space that is both intimate and social. National high school competition that I received 1st place on during my senior year of high school. Made me a local celebrity for a few months.
