ABOUT


Sarah Kantrowitz is a designer working at the intersection of food justice and the built environment. Focusing primarily on  infrastructure for stronger regional food systems, Sarah supports the design of facilites and systems for processing, storing, and distributing food through client work, research, and art making. 

Recent client projects include consulting on design for a cooperative slaughterhouse, a public commercial kitchen, a community-based produce hub. Current research interests include reconsidering food safety regulations for natural building materials, under deeper study of the dynamics of moisture migration and microbial abundance. Current artistic interests include letting a cheese to spoil in a grotta beneath a waterfall. 


Sarah works from committments that : 

(a.) good food is a human right,
(b.) architecture is a tool to improve lives,
(c.) craft in the things we make is an act of embodied care, and
(d.) well-made food and architecture can nourish us in living more directly in our bodies, grounded in sensory being and in relationship with others and our surrounding environment. 

And approaches design through
attunment to :

(a.) sensory intimacy in craft and materiality,
(b.) the emotional intelligence of a space,
(c.) the seductions of ecological relationship and metabolic transformation, and
(d.) lovingly-hewn moments of trans-scalar confluence.


Sarah is a daughter of New York, and is currently based in Massachussets.

AUDRE LORDE on USES OF THE EROTIC

"We tend to think of the erotic as an easy, tantalizing sexual arousal. I speak of the erotic as the deepest life force, a force which moves us toward living in a fundamental way."



CORNEL WEST on JUSTICE

"Never forget that justice is what love looks like in public."
