This spring, the city of Amsterdam is host to the European Union. On the Marineterrein politicians discuss and decide on Europe’s future, under bright artificial light, with cameras and microphones registering each and every word.
In reaction, at the nearby temporary campus FabCity, Studioninedots built with StoneCycling a pavilion with a fireplace right in the heart of it.
The True Talker is a cone-shaped pavilion that consists of one wall twisting around itself, triggering people to come in and explore the core. The solid but transparent structure is made from StoneCycling’s innovative and circular WasteBasedBricks.
During the day, the open brick pattern creates a play of light within the volume – in the dark the pavilion’s surroundings are illuminated from the fire inside, presenting itself as a beacon.
With The TrueTalker Studioninedots once more initiated a project to gather multidiscipline partners in order to translate the omnipresent need for personal contact and collectivity into an attractive and technically challenging design.
