     The Culinary Artist Knowledge Exchange, C. A. K. E. for short, is a four week design project based in the North Davidson (NoDa) area of Charlotte, NC.  The program includes a culinary school, administration, residence, and a public bakery.  The design focuses on the play between public and private, living, and learning, and the interaction of the building with the land.  Oriented around the notation of rotation, the building consists of various arms that have been 'rotated' about the vertical circulation units, leaving behind an impression in the landscape.
