Ministry of Food in Berlin's Tempelhof Airport

Great project to requalify the former Berlin main airport with a social and evironmentally sound project.

Tempelhof Ministry of Food 2010
The proposal in Berlin is the culmination of the continuous theme of Food and the community, starting from the Miracle of feeding the 5000, a mythical settlement, the Berlin Airlift, and finally the Ministry of Food.
Tempelhof Ministry of Food is a bread and fish production community situated on the old airfield of Tempelhof Airport. The proposal is a joint venture between Edeka and the Berlin State, seeking to help Berlin's current problems of unemployment and social disparity. It aims at the idea of making the unemployed personally sustainable through producing their own food and whilst being a worker in-residence, foster a spirit of co-existence and community, which they bring back to other Berliners.
