Daily Calorie Intake

This is a spread I put together for an architecture studio project in my 4th year studio. Two studios worked together to create a book all about farming and how it relates to different aspects of the world as a research study before beginning our next design project.


This spread talks about the disparity in the world in daily calorie intakes. The United States consumes the most calories per day on average at 3770 while Burundi takes in the least average calories a day at 1628.


The word bubble comments on the US spending 250 million dollars a day on obesity related diseases and 109 million dollars on weight loss programs...but only 5.5 million a day on global food aid.


Much better if viewed large.
