What I can propose at TPOD is using my experience in Sweden, a country of SDGs innovation, to play a role of bridging between architecture and food.

"Ethical environmental design"
With many sustainable ways to do it,
Respecting life, environmental conservation, and local production for local consumption.

“Farm to table, Table to farm”

“A Proposal of new food from food loss.’’

“Proposal for creating a system from production to consumption”

By continuing to use the vegetables of contract farmers throughout the year, we can protect the lives of organic farmers and provide stable support to restaurants with supports from customers.

With rapid changes in food and lifestyles over the years,
How do we ensure our food remain in abundance in future?
I propose we raise awareness in the appreciation for food in mindful eating and not only pursuing a tasty meal.
