One can describe them as Urban Origami. They consist of a simple folding geometric form that are easily distinguishable. It is expressed as simple compact form of folded panels made of steel. The opening mechanism works via a counterweight system operated by an electric winch. Once open it forms a canopy.

The structure is 1.95m deep x 3m wide comprising steel framing and plywood-stressed interior linning.Rain-skin cladding panels create an insulative air gap that helps to reduce solar gain.

Externally, powder-coated aluminium cladding panels make the kiosk highly resilient and durable requiring minimal maintenance.

As lightweight as they are, they were prefabricated and tested off-site and assembled on site.
