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. Because a good campfire triggers big ideas and storytelling everyone is invited to sit down, relax and share warming, unreasonable, crazy, unimaginable and hilarious ideas at The TrueTalker.

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.
This is the place to sit down, relax, and exchange ideas. Everyone is invited to come to FabCity, to sit down at the heart of The TrueTalker and share ideas on the future of Europe, the world, mankind or anything else. To trigger even more stories a series of events is initiated, find the overview here.
The TrueTalker was on show in Amsterdam until 26 June 2016. After the 26th the TrueTalker was moved to a new location. Check out the video here.
