Craig Shillitto, Barbacoa
Barbacoa was created by architect Craig Shillitto, with collaborators Bobby Palombo, Katie Merz, Mateo Fernandez-Muro and Pete Lipson.
Barbacoa is more than an architectural experiment, it acts as a gathering place for a series of programs, workshops, dinners, and more. As day fades into evening, the lit kitchen and dining area glow as a beacon for visitors and diners invited to celebrate an international chef exchange and engage in dialogue.
The work is a thought experiment exploring the potential for art and architecture to work in tandem to help communities envision an intercultural and sustainable future.
