At the beginning of the century cities used to have many kiosks as urban furniture. They were small, built in a round or polygonal plan, crowned with a roof like a chinese hat (the inspiration were chinese pavilions) The uses were simple, coffee & beverages, flowers, magazines or tickets.
Nowadays there are hardly present in modern urban design. However kiosks always later occupy the streets, but in boxy shapes, crowding a street already too narrow. So why not plan from the beginning to do something nice?
Do you have kiosks in your cities that you like? would you share them with me?
