Berg’n, a new food hall in Brooklyn, anchors a historic Studebaker factory that was redeveloped in 2014 into creative office space, with a unique mix of food and beverage vendors designed to give tenants a place to meet and socialize. Join Selldorf Architects partners Lisa Green and Sara Lopergolo to learn about how the design of the space reflects the way that New Yorkers are interacting around food today, and how the layout and warm but sophisticated aesthetic reflect the way that new technology is driving people to seek out social spaces that are flexible and informal.
The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is a year-long series of public programs, organized by Open House New York as part of its ongoing Urban Systems Series. The Final Mile is intended to shed light on New York City’s dynamic and multi-layered food economy while introducing and exploring approaches to render this invisible system more tangible.
The Final Mile: Food Systems of New York is made possible with generous support from the Reba Judith Sandler Foundation.
