Royal College of Art launches CLIMAVORE x Jameel partnership with Cooking Sections for unique sustainability research
A new three-year partnership between the Royal College of Art (RCA), Community Jameel and the London-based former Turner Prize nominees Cooking Sections has been announced by the institution in the hopes of using architecture as a tool to advance our knowledge of agriculture-related sustainability practices in the built environment. The initiative is being led by Cooking Sections co-founders Alon Schwabe and Daniel Fernández. The school’s new CLIMAVORE x Jameel at RCA partnership will focus on two projects which 'reimagine how we eat as human activity changes the climate by developing new methodologies and enhancing policies around the globe'. Both projects will offer research fellowship opportunities to postgraduate students while exploring 'how nature-centred food systems can be developed with communities in drylands and wetlands that are subject to particular seasonal stresses' in the form of site-specific case studies in Türkiye, France and Italy, respectively.
