Lemonade Stand Prevents Thirsty Days, Unsociable Nights and Suicide
Architect Aurélie Monet Kasisi designed a mobile unit for a suicide prevention organization that looks like a cheery, tropical food stand
Architect Aurélie Monet Kasisi designed a mobile cart for the Swiss organization Stop Suicide in the form of a tropical food stand. The design was inspired by the street food stalls and carts Kasisi saw on her travels through South America, Africa and Asia.
Stop Suicide wanted a “multifunctional device that could easily be transported in public spaces” to spread suicide prevention campaigns and activities throughout cities in Switzerland. According to the architect, it’s the ideal space for small gatherings within the city: “The mobile units often used to serve food or sell various goods host a small collective experience within the city. That is exactly what I wanted the mobile stand to generate in Swiss public spaces.”
