Co-Vivial / Co-Creative Dining


We live in a transient world: rapid growth of urbanization and advancements in technology are changing the way we live and interact.
With cities growing at a faster rate than ever before, 60% of the population is expected to live in cities by 2030. Despite the increasing density and proximity of people, our current urban structure favors solo living and creates an emotional disconnect. In response to growing number of solo dwellers in metropolises, I am introducing Co-Vivial, a new concept for public dining.
Co-Vivial is a membership based, community dining typology-a place for gathering, where food is an activity.
