Abstract

How does food and its capture, cultivation, preparation, and consumption represent a cultural act that can directly affect the revitalization of a small downtown?The objective of this thesis is the adaptive reuse of an existing structure to spawn redevelopment in downtown Greenville, Mississippi. The building will be developed into a student housing, culinary school, and farmer’s market, which promotes cultural and environmental preservation as well as community involvement. It also provides a prominent point of interest in the downtown fabric through agricultural tourism that further promotes downtown development.
