the design is just alright, but how does this design actually be appealing when its not far from a box with big glazing and few benches outside? Is it necessary to have so many huge solar panel for such a small building?

hmmm you mentioned about adjustable solar panels, but it seems the sun is coming from the right, the panelds would have to turn, and if does, doesnt the panel need to be push up further to be able to turn to accommodate the angled flat roof? just something i noticed, maybe you have a way to solve it?

Self Sufficient Design

Submitted by wwright on August 05, 2009

Many bus designs are boxes with a few benches and no real design purpose but to shield those from inclement weather. With a Self Sufficient design we can change the way the bus stop looks and feels like, using materials that are industrial and street friendly with little up keep and an aesthetic appeal that will fit an urban or rural area. Solar panels adjusted to the sunlights rays, interactive bus routes and maps, wide windows to provide good circulation and bike racks that encourage those to travel to and from the stop in different ways will encourage those to travel with mass transportation. Promoting green energy and waste management and mass transit will help with our ability to tackle our addiction to energy and contribute to living sustainably.
