FARADAY WORK is a 150 year old factory located in the Woolwich area of London. To breathe new life into these iconic, 'endangered' buildings, it will be transformed into a brand new community in 2026.
The focus of the project is to provide the new Faraday Work community with a social, shared kitchen for new residents from different places, helping the community to get to know each other more easily and thus increasing community harmony. Inspired by a community cookbook published by a local artist who believes that food is a great way to help people connect with each other, they have collected the stories behind many of the local community's favourite foods and shared their stories to help other residents understand them.
The Faraday Work Community Shared Kitchen provides a place to connect people by making and sharing food. It is a narrative space that allows people to meet each other through a fun, unplanned interactive shop, then through a wave-shaped kitchen that allows the residents who make the food to meet face-to-face, and finally through a BIG table with an unusual entrance. Table. The whole process creates more opportunities for interesting encounters, helping people to get to know each other faster, while reducing social phobia and making it easier for people to join in.
