Flatbread Society is a growing constellation of farmers, oven builders, astronomers, artists, soil scientists and bakers aligned through a common interest in the long and complex relation we have to grain.
Together we are working on Bakehouse Bjørvika, which will be a public baking facility housed within an experimental architectural structure in Bjørvika. A multi-functional oven will facilitate various types of bread baking, smoking and cooking. The heat from the ovens will heat seating.
A demonstration grain field cultivating heritage grains. Planted in the "commons" the grains demonstrate the pressing issues of food security, biodiversity and intellectual property. The field will invite us to consider the history and currents of grain-based societies.
