Recent recent architecture and landscape architecture graduate, Chris DeHenzel (M.Arch/M.L.A. ’13) was awarded the 2014 AIA/SF Merit Award in the Unbuilt Design category. The proposed Oakland Food Hub is a contemporary model of the public food market ancient urban typology. Conceived as a node in the expanding system of local food distribution in the Bay Area, the Hub would operate on multiple scales as a wholesale/retail farmers market, education facility and local business incubator.
This project came out of research as a 2012 John K. Branner Traveling Fellow and in the 2013 M.Arch Thesis Studio Water + Architecture.
