Periptero (kiosk) – pink house press

The power to move your business.

PHP#2 (on neighbourhood).

pink house, February 2018

we created an architectural structure that could house and distribute our magazines, make room for our library and create a space where books and people could meet.

The structure became a replica of a Greek kiosk (Greek: periptero). These kiosks are individual units located on the streets and sell mainly drinks, cigarettes and newspapers, chewing gum, etc. In our case one could find zines and magazines, made in the pink house or distribute publications and other editions from friends. The profit we made from these editions was to balance the expenses of the house.

 

structure designed and made by Camille Cluzan, Ersi Varveri, Gijs Waterschoot. Thanks to Valentine Cernat, Adam Galach

 

The periptero was open to visit and catch up through our publications on various weekends since its release. Later it became part of (almost) every event that was held in ph. Our periptero was built to be easily dismantled and rebuilt, so that it could travel to other places and occasions. (see below)
