In May of 2008, Slow Food USA held Slow Food Nation, an unprecedented three-day event at Fort Mason in San Francisco. The event featured environmentalists, farmers and food professionals from every region of the country. In order to create the special educational environments for the event, organizers engaged top designers and architects from the Bay Area. Geddes Ulinskas Architects worked with Slow Food USA and local honey and jam producers to create the Honey and Jam pavilion. The 2,000 square-feet pavilion was built entirely form berry picking crates used by farmers and reclaimed fence boards. Over 30,000 attendees visited the honey and jam pavilion and after the event was finished, all the crates and fence boards were returned to farmers for their use and no part of the pavilion was sent to landfill.
