The Future Supermarket Will Be as Much a Learning Space as a Shopping Center
Design firm Carlo Ratti Associati reimagines the Future Food District as a hub of interactivity and education
When it comes to grocery shopping, aside from self-checkout, the method has stayed the same for as long as anyone can remember. Now, to keep up with the pace of technological advancements Carlo Ratti, founder and lead designer at the Carlo Ratti Associati firm plans to switch up the supermarket game completely.
Ratti’s creation is part of Expo Milano 2015, a six-month exhibition that explores technology, innovation, culture, traditions and creativity and how they relate to food and diet. The theme this year is ‘Feeding the Planet, Energy for Life,’ which was used as a prompt for Ratti to create his proposal named The Future Food District.
