In order to show how the extremely high cost of rent is crippling London's creative community, architects Tomaso Boano and Jonas Prišmontas teamed up to create a pop-up studio space for the London Festival of Architecture 2016.

The office cube is a small-space structure that introduces what an affordable pop-up space might look like. The space is framed by steel and has foldable walls made with translucent paneling. On the inside, fixtures are constructed from inexpensive oriented stand board.

The studio has been named 'Minima Moralia,' which is a reference to a text by German theorist Theodor Adorno, which offers "Reflections from Damaged Life." Throughout the month-long London Festival of Architecture, the space that Minima Moralia provides is being put to use by local artists.
