2nd Constructlab Kiosk = Kiosk of Solidarity

The Kiosk of Solidarity was an urban practice initiative that engaged in Berlin’s dynamic social landscape. From June to September 2023, 11 Berlin-based initiatives and projects that embody the spirit of solidarity utilized the Kiosk (designed and build by Constructlab) at various locations across the city for brief periods. Through a diverse array of formats, they fostered connections among neighbors, fellow activists, and the wider community, temporarily bringing their solidarity practices into the public urban sphere.

Constructlab’s  first kiosk served as a conceptual exploration of potential usage scenarios, while this second kiosk decisively shifted the focus from mere form to the transformative power of activation. The realization of this second kiosk brought into sharp focus the gap between envisioning the potential of a mobile structure and its actualization through meaningful user engagement. Through their dedication and passion, the Transforming Solidarities team breathed life into this kiosk, transforming it into a hub of activity and engagement.

The Kiosk of Solidarity won the jury price at Der Spiegel Social Design Award 2023 (link to an overview of all nominees) and is currently on display at the Deutsche Architektur Zentrum DAZ, Berlin.
