CAROLYN STEEL: HUNGRY CITY
Carolyn Steel is an architect, lecturer and writer. Her book Hungry City: How Food Shapes Our Lives describes the urban through food and uses food as a lens to explore how cities are fed, looking at food in the urban metropolis from farm to table to garbage can. Her interest lies in exploring the inner lives of cities, and her work has focused on developing a lateral approach to urban design that looks at the everyday routines that shape cities and the way we inhabit them. She has run design studios at the London School of Economics, London Metropolitan University and at Cambridge University, where her lecture course ‘Food and the City’ is an established part of the degree program.
