2023, Karlsruhe / DE

Mailboxes, trash cans, ATMs, benches, fountains – these are many small objects of the urban space that, like the kiosk, enjoy a rather unimportant existence as purely functional pieces of public infrastructure. But through the concrete behavior we perform there, we allow these micro-architectures to awaken into "temples of the sidewalk" – places of cult and ritual to which we regularly go on pilgrimage in everyday life. The design is therefore not only dedicated to the kiosk as the largest temple, but supplements it with all the other small but characteristic temples of the urban space, houses them and celebrates them all under one common roof.
