Time for Some TrueTalkin' at FabCity in Amsterdam

This spring, the city of Amsterdam is host to the European Union. At the Marineterrein location, politicians discuss and decide on Europe’s future, under bright artificial light, with cameras and microphones registering each and every word. 

As a response to this event, at the nearby temporary campus FabCity, Studioninedots and StoneCycling built a pavilion with a fireplace right in the heart of it.

StoneCycling || Storytelling at TrueTalker Pavilion in Amsterdam

Circular Storytelling

A good campfire triggers big ideas and storytelling, so everyone is invited to sit down, relax and share warming, unreasonable, crazy, unimaginable and hilarious ideas at The TrueTalker and share ideas on the future of Europe, the world, mankind or anything else.

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.

The TrueTalker will be on show in Amsterdam until 26 June 2016. 

Do you know any significant places that could use some TrueTalkin’? Give us a call. We would be happy to explore if we can transport the TrueTalker to a next location.
