Architecture Activism documents ten projects that specifically address social problems and societal needs around the globe in which architecture is used as a means of actively fostering the development of livable places and environments. Among them is SOLARKIOSK, a self-initiated project that empowers people in off-grid communities by bringing clean energy and light into darkness.
