By Angela Molina Calzada

Abstract

Feeding has always been linked to a specific area where this ritual is held. Primitive bonfires were the place where kitchen as a main space were food is either treated or cooked emerged. Feminist revolutions, globalization and technological developments have been the main reasons of kitchen developing in typologies, shapes and locations. Women desires to abandon kitchen slavish space almost made the kitchen area disappear in favor of communal kitchens located in each residential complex. Kitchen space has always been changing its size, appearing and disappearing depending on how society evolved. This is why we, as an organized society, should focus our attention on how this space will evolve. Will communal kitchens be the solution for a society whose relationships are constantly on the verge of disappearing? Will small kitchenettes be the winner and let us save either money or space
