    The Solarkiosk
    functions like a small, local business that allows customers to charge their own phone batteries, have access to the internet, or just watch a soccer match. The kit design is flexible enough to be set up anywhere. The smallest sizes of the SOLARKIOSK are 2×3 and 3×3 meter cubes, and can be extended according to demand.

    Wolfram Putz
    studied Architecture in Germany at the Technische Universität Braunschweig where he graduated as Dipl.-Ing. Arch, at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City and at the Southern Californian Institute of Architecture, USA, where he received his Master. In 1998 Wolfram Putz established GRAFT in Los Angeles together with Thomas Willemeit and Lars Krückeberg. Throughout its 10 year existence, GRAFT has won numerous national and international awards and garnered international fame with a wide-spread following.
