Planetary Protocols: Anna Puigjaner / Kitchenless Cities

Anna Puigjaner: Kitchenless Cities / Response by Maria Lind

Anna Puigjaner is an architect, editor, researcher and co-founder of the architectural office MAIO. MAIO’s works have been published in various international magazines and exhibited at Biennale di Venezia, Chicago Architecture Biennial and MOMA. Puigjaner was awarded with the 2016 Wheelwright Prize, Harvard GSD, for her research on “Kitchenless Cities”.

There was a time in New York when the house was understood as an open system. It was designed, not as a single entity, but as a set of connected fragments that could change depending on the need. The space was flexible and adaptable on demand, and expanded also by means of collective domestic services and spaces. The kitchen was optional as the rest of the rooms and sometimes it was left apart, “kitchenless”.

This typology blurred the traditional limits between the public and the private sphere, between the domestic and the urban, and thanks to its flexibility and share-ability was able to shrink radically housekeeping costs, waste and labour. Still nowadays the idea of home is ultimately a cultural construction whose malleable limits go beyond its physicality. A home, and its kitchen, is therefore a diffuse entity.

Planetary Protocols is a cross-disciplinary series of talks at ArkDes in Stockholm that brings together international thinkers and practitioners to present their work and perspectives on architecture, design, identity, and statehood.
