Pachamama is a kitchen specifically designed and developed to meet the needs of the Colombian family. The work is the result of an open vision, which considers and arranges different elements - from local traditions to the economy and ecological sustainability - and aims to identify and develop elements that are clearly recognizable as part of Colombia. The project is based on four fundamental principles: management of the flow of resources, enhancement of elements linked to tradition and to specific features of the territory, development of responsible practices and the exploitation of the key principles of healthy eating. The kitchen’s program is based on a series of freely modular elements, created according to a specific function. Each element serves different purposes for the user, taking advantage of simple and natural technological processes (preservation by evaporation, the breakdown of organic waste to produce biogas and fertilizers, air purification carried out by plants). The dimensions of each Pachamama module are tailored to the needs of the consumers and with the aim of keeping consumption as low as possible. The project was developed using Theory and Systemic Design and History of Design Systems courses as a basis.
