ok, yeah, nice. maybe discuss the materials that you might use. this will look very nice when it is new, but might degrade quickly. how do you keep it clean and vibrant. i would also suggest you use the university's U, instead of a times new roman U. it makes sense with the loudness of the stop. pretty good stuff.

Hi kavbar, you are right...I could have included more information about potential materials and also about the font of the ā€˜Uā€™. The white and black U-shaped walls could possibly be solid phenolic exterior wall panels. I have researched that this provides good structural integrity, as well as UV, impact, moisture, and graffiti resistance. Since they are available in a variety of textures and designs, the white could be glossy and the black maybe a rock texture. The red colored shelter with trellises could be made of water resistant plywood elements treated for outdoor use. I wanted to maintain a contrast with the materials to help further define the major elements that make up the bus stop. Thanks for your input!

nice variety in the types of spaces for users as they wait

This is well thought out and appears to accommodate the riders.

Very attractive.However from a user point of view where do you go to get out of the wind?

Colors could be embedded in materials for better durability. I like your use of solar/LED for tower. Tower matches some themes already on campus.

U-Shaped Inspired Bus Stop

Submitted by alicia.d on August 30, 2009

Designed for the campus of the University of Utah, the concept for this red, white and black bus stop is an attempt at exploiting the properties of the U-shape.

The users of this bus stop are encouraged to interact with these U-shaped elements as they vary in function, orientation and scale.

In essence, various degrees of transparencies along with an exploration of adjacencies and types of enclosures were investigated to create a sense of different places within this small space.

More information available on the image boards…
Thanks for viewing.
