Logistical

Urbanism:

The Space of Food

“Globalization has made possible that the urban landscapes born from food’s flows take a superficial- similar shape everywhere: from the rural areas to the city center or from food terminals to big food markets, cartographies leave similar traces behind”

“Over the last century, food delivery systems in large urban centers, although largely overlooked by planners, economists, and politicians, have undergone a critical transformation towards keeping the retail giants from gaining complete control of the food supply system.”

Nina Marie Lister, Food

“For all their mess, noise and nuisance, markets bring something vital to a city: an awareness of what it takes to

sustain life

Markets are contradictory spaces, but that is the point. They are spaces made by food.”

Carolynn Steel, Hungry City: How food Shapes our Lives
