Cafe and food wall. With an overhang the space becomes not only a place to eat but one where impromptu meetings can take place as well as socialization between businesses. This is a crucial spot to bounce ideas off one another. The yellow food wall accompanying the space uses a set of mechanical arms to grab the food specified by the user via touch screen and dispenses the item. It sparks movement and the gears on the front not only move but hint back to a time of inovation.
