Let's meet [B]us stop

Submitted by Sharch on August 08, 2009

What is waiting ? It’s loosing time !

What is waiting for a bus ? Usually it’s seating (if there is some place), listening our own music, calling friends using mobile to be sure don’t speak with unknown people. Waiting a bus is like being in a bubble surrounded by other people in their own bubble, as if we were alone.
All societies are based on meeting and comprehension. Because it’s public and open to everybody, public transports can be a real support for society life, and bus stops can be social spaces.

The best way for people to meet and break distances is playing a game. So what is seating, what is leaning, what is resting, what is waiting ? They are ways to meet. In this bus stop, whatever you want to do needs two people. Seats are balances, so you have to be two to balance it, you can also lean on some elements but if you want to feel good you have to be two.
A game is naturally beginning, and people have to communicate each other to find the best stability. By this way waiting a bus becomes a funny game in which people will play even if they don’t know each other.

To show it all the bus stop is like unstable, using scenography to animate the space and provide different feelings. Different areas, corresponding to different uses, are created by the move of the structure, expressing movement of the society.
The structure is created by a repetion and rotation of one steel strip, which length change. Some boxes becomes embedded in the structure to provide different functions like ticketing, food & drink dispensing, web and bus informations.

This bus stop is a real point of social life and happy time, using a game to establish communication between people without they never have spoke together.
