MELTING P(L)OT

How to invite people from various cultures to share an eating experience in which kitchens are melted and mixed together?

MELTING P(L)OT, heterogeneous societies in a plot, refers to an eating place where pepole from various cultures are invited to share an eating experience in which kitchens are melted and mixed together. The word P(L)OT  has two meanings: one is a pot that represents food culture, and the other one is a plot that represents the context, in this case the FORUM building in Rotterdam. FORUM, a city in the city, aims to represent Rotterdam in one building.

As everyone knows, Rotterdam is a multicultural city. The MELTING P(L)OT will be a place for food culture or a food court which offers the cultural diversity of the food one can find in Rotterdam.

But the poetry of eating does not only come from the food itself. Also the narrative, rituals and atmosphere surrounding eating are part of the enjoyment. It seems as if eating is a metaphor for the show which uses food as a main character adn customers as the actors.

To compose a story for the MELTING P(L)OT, Klinphaka started by creating an experience with the concept of the open kitchen. The next step was to attract people from different cultures by offering unique eating experiences with special local menus and local eating habits. To emphasize the heterogeneous, Klinphaka choose to put together opposing ingredients from each menu. Finally, the goal of the MELTING P(L)OT is to minimize the discrepancies and create a new experience by designing a harmonic interior space that merges the various open kitchens and their related experiences.
