Edible Utopia at NAI Rotterdam

31nd of August 2012  – Rotterdam

After the success of  Sandwich Utopia in July 2012, the Netherlands Architecture Institute invited Spaghetti Forever to repeat the DIY workshop for the closing celebration of Zomer in het NAI. The participants could design and build an utopic urban environment using food products and ingredients consumed in a typical Dutch meal. The natural setting had the shape of an archipelago where the islands were floating in a sea of stroop.

The whole evening, titled “Beyond architecture”, included lectures by Matthijs Bouw, Dan Hassler-Forest on Batman and Gotham City , Rutger Zuydervelt from the Machinefabriek and a sound performance by Mark Bain. You can find the full program here.

As soon the Edible Utopia was built, it was shared and eaten.

Spaghetti Forever | Edible Utopia was hosted by Giuseppe Licari and NAI Rotterdam 2012.
