The project starts investigating how to bring people together, with the existence of diverse cultures in the area, and in general people lack a sense of security and belonging in the local districts. From the experiment on site, with the presence of food, stories, and the cozy physical space, people were gathered together regardless of their backgrounds and religious. From further researches on the food, culture and the city, a proposal was development combining diverse cultural shops and restaurants where the local residents could gather. They can use the space to grow spices from their original countries, to explore personal stories and cultural identities, and to re-define the relationship to place through the making and sharing of food.
