The kitchen work triangle is a model that was developed in the 1940s to address the efficiency of the kitchen space between the major work centers: Cooking, Preparation (sink/dishwasher) and Food Storage (refrigerator).
It was designed to maximize the efficiency of a one-cook kitchen that stemmed from Taylorist principles that had to do with time-motion studies from around the turn of the century.
The University of Illinois School of Architecture developed the work triangle to emphasize cost reduction by standardising construction. This resulted in a variety of configurations.
