This project was designed to be the interior storyteller of buffalo GRoW house in 2015 Solar Decathlon competition(entry from University at Buffalo) which was an eco-house for an urban farmer who live , garden, and relax in the house.
Imagined as a dual storage and pickling station for vegetables grown on-site, this console’s textured metal lid is supposed to flip open to reveal a pressure canner. The lid was fabricated by Rigidized Metals Corporation, one of UB’s biggest industrial partners and donors for the competition. Four shelves feature grooves—milled by a computer-controlled router— for organizing Mason jars.
