Ines views her project, “In a context of rapid social and political transformation, (she) proposed a system of interventions into the spaces of food distribution in the city of Havana, Cuba (las bodegas). The aim of this proposal is twofold: firstly, to create a mechanism of food distribution that can offer an alternative to the foreseeable privatization and deregulation of the current state owned system; second, understanding the food distribution as a social and political process, the project aims at generating new networks of solidarity in the urban fabric of the city.

Ines used Autocad, QGIS, Rhino, and Illustrator to create these incredible renders!
