Food Trucks of the Future Could Have Legs and Wings

What will the food truck of the future look like? This semester, Jennifer Siegal of the Office of Mobile Design taught a topic studio for USC architecture undergrads called "Generation Mobile: Exploring the Deployable, 'Free-Range Cuisine' Truck Culture" with goal of finding out. Her students met chefs, mobile business owners, suppliers, and community activists and explored the "burgeoning food truck ubiquitous with the mobile Los Angeles culture." Since it was an architecture class, it was about the "possibilities of portable structures and mobile environments from which to draw from." And for a final project, the students designed their own future-looking food trucks. The work will be exhibited at the Border Grill downtown starting today.
