A008    Collective Digest: Acts of Convivial Metabolism

Through a transformation of Aarhus Slaughterhouse into a sustainable food facility, Collective Digest serves as a table to promote ecological design conversations with more than human actors, like plants, bacteria, and fungi, on a broader notion of metabolism but also reflects on the architecture that responds to this entangled paradigm. 

The project celebrates metabolic acts by making the hidden visible and by transferring ‘metabolism’ qualities, like growth, decay, nutrient release, and digestion, to the domain of building and construction materials. The program is designed as an ecosystem in a feedback chain of physiological exchanges, willing to provide, through architecture, a dialogic ground to respond to the alienation between people and their food provisions.

The result is an architecture that has an expressive capacity to metabolize, digest, and generate resources while reorganizing processes and systems and imagining new rituals, materials, and spaces to support those needs. Collective Digest celebrates an architecture that is relational, reversible, heterogeneous, and plural, that operates beyond its formal definition, in relation, always, with Others.
