Attractive design with well thought safety conditions! Loved the idea of adaptability of size!

Well this as good aplace to stop as any I've seen so far. Funny huh!

Very original. Definitely like the additional space for vending machines & cover for pedestrians

well defined and articulated design....Good job...:)

Not to shabby! The roof looks like it would shed water onto the sidewalk, though. Bummer.

Nice idea. However one has to be practical as far as the budget. Doubt that the City will go for that for just a bus stop.

Great job! Liked the idea to keep people dry in bad weather. Great idea!

I like the design and the inclusion of electronics into the side panels powered byt the solar panels

The largest problem in cities is places to sit down. Are there seats in this design? It occurs to me that this design project has been biased by shackling students to a century old concept, the bus. Why not let them be free to design high speed, high density systems (e.g., jet tubes) for transport into and out of the city. Today, we need entrepreneurial innovation most of all.

Metaphysician777, I agree with all of the things you stated, there are seats in this design if you look at the rendering on the diagram page.Pertaining to your comments about the competition, I wouldnt disagree...

ticks all the boxes. perhaps a little chunky, and to me, the signage gable seems to make the stop a bit uninviting but this is all subjective opinion. i also dont get why people (not just yourself) are mentioning wifi. saying a stop has wifi is not architecture, every stop could claim to have it, it's a little irrelevant, but i digress. it doesnt really show whether or not you can move from the cantilever-covered standing area, through the seats to the main space, and i would suggest it is important to be able to do this, than having to walk around. anything else i could say has been said. generally, not bad though.

oh, and metaphysician777, your comment on the importance of rethinking and requestioning is spot on. But, unfortunately, in most countries (america more so than most, adopt the damn metric system!), such innovation takes years to develop, years to test, years to acquire financial and political support and years to implement, meaning we are unfortunately always behind were we need to be. In fact, streets existed long before motorised transport, and so were never meant to carry high speed traffic. But to apply your point to the sad reality that we are stuck with buses for the time being, i would suggest the best designs here are those that imagine their bus stops not even existing in 10 years, but instead being reintegrated into a technical cycle of redesign and reproduction, and this design shows some of that modular, forward thinking humility.

This design is rated higher than it currently shows. It should be fixed shortly - our apologies for any inconvenience.

vey well thoght out and presented.

Very attractive and original design. The standardized kits and sustainable design are great ideas which could help sell your design to budget concerned community.

Well done!

The Modular concept is quite nice and could be very useful, if quite expensive as currently designed, but the aesthetic component of this concept sterile and unlovely--even graceless.
Posted Sep 02, 2009 4:09 PM by NewTowner

awesome concept!
Posted Sep 04, 2009 12:09 AM by dramse

Very exciting design! The design is very functional and constructable. Great presentation!

What an awesome design. Very futuristic

Nice idea with the modularity concept. I don't quite buy the sustainable bit, as PV cells on a plane essentially parallel to the ground plane would not reach much efficiency. You seem to have considered a lot though, good design.

awesome design! love how people can stay dry in bad weather-i hate waiting for the bus in the rain!

Nice concept, we could definitely use a few of these at school!
Posted Sep 07, 2009 8:09 PM by ch.whittaker

Confusing and over designed.

great work... i like the option of adding spaces, congratulation!

Interesting that this submission is one of the few (or only?) that shows inclement weather instead of a nice sunny day. It is a shelter, after all.........
Posted Sep 16, 2009 2:09 AM by graystone

very beautiful graphics and wonderful representation of weather conditions. I also very much enjoy the adaptability of the bus stop itself.
Posted Sep 17, 2009 6:09 AM by mrbarker

I 've viewed this site over time and this submission always draws me to it...Very Creative and thought through.
Posted Sep 20, 2009 4:09 AM by ArchDesign

I like the innovative thought that was used to design this shelter. I also liked the posted time on the side.

nice dude

Very well thought out design, good use of modular components, looks to be adaptable to a variety of program requirements. Your renderings in the rain are good!
Posted Sep 23, 2009 1:09 PM by tsquare

I fail to see how the unit attaches to the ground. Marginal!
Posted Sep 24, 2009 1:09 PM by SuWeiYin

looks like a military machine or one of those megatron things...

nice job

This is a modular design without looking modular. Shape is futuristic, yet fits the need. Gives me a feel of movement and flow --ie "transporting"
Posted Sep 25, 2009 12:09 PM by kesterj

This has everything going for it. The design is attractive and the concept is incredibly functional. A great example of form following function. The idea of having them produced in a kit form for adaptability of size and location is wonderful. The concept of the self sustaining solar panels is great. My only question is will it sustain itself after five days of cloud cover and rain? If so this stop can be placed any where without having to be tied to a power source to keep all of its features functional. Safe, practical, attractive,adaptable size and self sustaining with all the needs of the modern commuter taken into consideration makes this a a terrific option for any municipality. those worried about high density systems and jet tubes? They were asked to design a bus stop!! This one is excellent. Before we design for high density transportation and jet tubes we have to find a way to pay for the infrastructure to support them. One step at a time. this time it is a bus stop!

great idea!!!!!!

very good design..this is a good bus stop ..keep up the good work.

This bus stop will be constructed with a standardized kit of parts. This allows the station to be adapted in size for various locations. It is equipped with solar panels to make it fully sustainable. The front facade is positioned close to the curb to maximize safety for waiting passengers. The curved facade prevents pedestrians from waiting to close to the street while buses arrive and depart. The station is equipped with L.E.D information boards at both ends of the station, a ticket vending located in the middle of the
structure, and is a LAN Wifi hotspot. There is a ledge for awaiting passengers to utilize. The structure extends to the rear which creates additional covered space for vending of food and beverages and relief from inclement weather for passing pedestrians.
