Composed of a translucent free-span roof resting on two structures housing the kiosk and a storage space, the entire construction is built of ordinary squared timber battens, which are recycled through the process of building. — TRU Architects | Berlin, Germany — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Finalist

This proposal attempts to express Chicago's "unlikeliness: that chutzpah, the strange emergence of something intricate and sophisticated in a hostile environment." The pavilion, its surface fading in from routed plywood panels to a pattern of shingles, transforms from a blank, block-like mass into something more architectural, refined and domestic. — Lekker | Singapore, Malaysia — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Finalist

"Behind the Curtain" aims to present itself in a manner that tries to conceal rather than embellish its monumentality, iconicity, and symbolism. Indeed, the kiosk's attenuated cylindrical form, composed of a simple base and frame, is simply obscured with a thinly-meshed veil. — Behind the Curtain by Kelley, Palider, Paros | Chicago, USA — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Finalist

The proposal draws from the idea of the wall, a fascination that starts with ancient ruins and temples—objects that are destroyed, but which still live in our memories. The kiosk forms a long, black wall that separates two worlds—the hectic, crowded streets and the tranquil sea. — kollektiv-a | Berlin, Germany — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Honorable Mention

The "little kiosk artistically considered" is an architectural assemblage. "It is flexible enough to suit most cultural and commercial programs but always retains the same architectural expression: the protection of a warm timber roof, the efficiency and luminosity of a glass box, the spatial punctuation brought by an arbitrary column. All its elements correspond in a loose and playful way." — fala atelier | Porto, Portugal — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Honorable Mention

"Ambient Light" aims to highlight the unique ambience of the waterfront, where sky meets earth and the horizon is exposed and illuminated. The kiosk, using lightweight materials, steel tubes, and fabric cables, forms a circle of translucent fabric that diffuses light, delimits space, and generates privacy. — Guillaume Mazars | Sydney, Australia — Chicago Architecture Biennial Lakefront Kiosk Competition Honorable Mention
