A Toronto-Taiwan Food Atlas: Urban Connections from Dumplings to Beef Noodle Soup

Public Deposited
Resource Type
  • This thesis investigates the connections of food and architecture locally and globally; It proposes a series of urban interventions in Toronto, through a study of the food culture of Taiwan. The phrase "you are what you eat" is often expressed relating to an individual's health but can also be seen as reflecting an individual's identity. For some, food is a family affair; the making of food as a family and the partaking of it together around the table speaks to many personal journeys. For others, food is about celebration; the concepts of hospitality and generosity being an integral part of many cultural traditions and lifestyles. As someone who is fundamentally connected and stretched between two physical and cultural landscapes, by leveraging works around spatial implications of food, my investigation seeks to make sense of personal family and cultural past and history.
