Storytellers pavilion

Studioninedots designed a cone-shaped pavilion around a campfire, to welcome and encourage storytellers in the temporary FabCity in Java Island, Amsterdam.

This spring, the city of Amsterdam is hosting the European Union at the Marineterrein, where politicians will discuss and decide on Europe’s future, under bright artificial light, with cameras and microphones registering each and every word. In reaction to this event, at the nearby temporary campus FabCity, Studioninedots designed a pavilion with a fireplace, using StoneCycling, to trigger big ideas and storytelling, inviting everyone to sit down, relax and share warming, hilarious and out of the box ideas.

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 semi-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, while in the dark the pavilion’s surroundings are illuminated from the fire inside, presenting itself as a beacon.
