Cocina Rural Telúrica | Telluric Rural Kitchen
Cocina Rural Telúrica (Telluric Rural Kitchen) is a community service project designed and constructed by Architecture students. The purpose is to create a traditional kitchen for the family of Eliseo and Luisa. This family suffered the earthquake of 2017 in the town of Tochimilco, and as a resilient family they want to improve their habitat conditions. The project includes eco-technology like solar-water-heating and soapy-water-separation.
One of the main purposes of the project was to re-introduce traditional construction systems with clay and to design with the family, a rural kitchen based on their needs.
The Telluric Kitchen is a pilot program in cooperation with the Chair of Land Management at TU München and funded by the Ministry of Education of Germany.
