In 2016 Amsterdam hosted the EU. At the nearby Living Lab FabCity, Studioninedots and StoneCycling developed and built The TrueTalker. The first pavilion in the world entirely made from WasteBasedBricks.
Having a fireplace in the heart of it, The TrueTalker served as a place for true conversation. New ideas, surprising visions, both heartwarming and heartbreaking stories were shared by people from all over the world.
In line with our with our circular ambitions we not only upcycled waste materials
but also gave the entire pavilion a new life. We moved it from FabCity, across the water, to a new and vibrant location.
Travel along and share your perspective on tomorrow’s world. Come in and sit down at the heart of The TrueTalker at our office in Amsterdam
