Makeshift Coffee Kiosk Blends Into The Classical Structures Around It

Modernizing classical structures can elicit a lot of criticism, especially if the design clashes with the older aesthetic. However, Tokyo-based studio PUDDLE found a way to build a structure that would blend into the historical site around it. The % Arabica Coffee Kiosk, used during the 2015 Kyoto International Modern Arts Festival, is made of transparent material, a combination of aluminum and polycarbonate, meant to blend into the background. The makeshift coffee kiosk’s materials are light and easy to assemble without affecting the old building, making it simple to move the kiosk as needed.
