WHOLE FOODS GROCERY STORE / COLUMBUS NORTH MARKET
Over time, the grocery store customer has become further disassociated with the source of their food. Two main conditions of food production and sale are exist in present day society. The North Market is representative of food in its natural, organic state while in contrast Whole Foods Grocery offers processed and artificial food. Whole Foods requires a large footprint and roof. The roof would be a wasted opportunity if not utilized. This proposal suggests that the two systems of food production and sale can coexist in the same location in a dichotomic relationship. The two systems are connected by a layer of circulation and a community garden on the roof of Whole Foods which provides local farmers a place to grow crops and a new location for the North Market.
