Hello everyone I am writing to introduce myself to the Postgreen community. My name is Victoria Perez and I will be interning for the summer designing kitchen customizations that range from being “green” to extremely environmentally friendly: based on materials, energy, and the overall user experience.
Perhaps you are asking what qualifies me to design an extreme green kitchen? Well, for the past year I have been a part of a project entitled The Philadelphia Green Kitchen. I am one of six graduate students at the University the Arts in center city Philadelphia looking to “greenify” the kitchen not just through designing recycling, composting, and appliance efficiency into that space; but more importantly through redesigning how people think about their kitchen. As well as how they interact with the resources in it, whether those resources are food, water, energy, or waste.
Our goal over the past year was to create projects that addressed a kitchen user’s habits. Now Postgreen has given me the opportunity to incorporate a portion of the research we have theorized and put it into practice by combining it with the reality of material choices and overall construction that will take place in the months ahead. I will be working most closely on this project with another intern, Miss Megan Braley. We will look forward to keeping you posted on the progress we make on the “Extreme Green Kitchen”, and any other ground breaking/earthshattering/… or just cool information we find on food, energy, water, composting, recycling, cooking, cleaning, eating, etc. etc. of all things kitchen.
If you enjoyed reading this post I can promise you'll love our new writing over at Postgreen Homes. Yeah, we know that's the same thing your favorite band said and their new album is nowhere near as good as their early stuff, but seriously, we are actually still getting better.
There also isn't much conversation to be had here . . . at least not with us. So come on over to the Postgreen Homes Blog and tell us what you think of our new(ish) digs and crazy ideas. We will be sure to tell you what we think of your opinion.
