I like the permeability of the sides and rear of the pavilion.

i like it. i dont know if it will stand up with the cantilevering weight of the roof. i would love to have seen the roof made the same way as the walls, creating a homogenous mini-structure, with the gaps in the roof filled with glass or efte. i have to say, i love the section drawing through the bus. fantastic.

The inspiration for my design began with a palm tree because of its canopy, organic, and logically erratic characteristics. A palm tree is similar to bus stop in which it must adapt to its surroundings. As a palm can grow in various climates from a tropical jungle to a desert a bus stop must adapt to its city’s infrastructure and climate from rural to urban settings.
The design objective was to adhere to the rider experience. The bus pavilion needs to protect the rider from heat and rain and make a leisurely transition from the pavilion to the bus. Providing functions such as coffee/food stands, newsstands, public bathrooms, or flower shops will bring activity to the pavilions that will develop an urban and pedestrian pulse that most American cities lack.
The axon drawing represents how each steel screen is bolted together and how the metal roof is attached to the steel truss system allowing for a quick assembly.
A modular expansion and reduction of the original adjusts to the different bus stop needs around the city. The two larger designs allow for a vendor space.
Improving public transportation is an essential solution in conserving energy and combat global warming and designing iconic, cordial bus pavilions will effectively increase rider use.
