is one of my favorites, the only problem I see is: the maintenance of the bus stations, so the economy is bad, you think there will be money to pay for the care of the station?

I think once you start representing the materials with their actual sizes you are going to find out that the whole project will take a very different hierarchy in terms of the relationships between planes. Right now the roofs are a fourth of the size that they will be in real life. Also, the project is too dependent in vegetation, which will not be there in winter. So the architecture needs to be a lot stronger so it works all year round. The first thing i think of when I see this project is 'Barcelona Pavilion' which works in its minimality because of the complexity of its reflections. That is not happening here. At the end of the day we need to ask our selves, would we like to use this space?

only the walls towards the road seem too high - how should drivers spot little kids who want to cross the street?

I think this project is going in a good direction. I like that the design moves away from just built structure and incorporates the landscape to define space. It would have been nice to see a bit more process work (diagrams that explain your concepts) to understand the project more. I get distracted by the manufactured feeling of the rendering. In reality I also think you'd need a lot more space than you show here... it's going to feel cramped. I feel like the space is over-developed and compartmentalized. Perhaps diagrams would have addressed this observation. But again, it's good to see a design that strives to use landscape as a contributing element in the definition of the space.

nice subtle design, but its uneconomical, and more importantly, you have completely ommited structure of ant kind. glass cannot float. it would be unfair of me to give this high marks when you have ignored something that everyone else has considered (well, almost everyone). sorry.

this is like the new phenomena happening in todays society the BIGNESS. It is a simple bus stop not a shoping mall LESS IS MORE. There is nothing great about it is just a long and bus stop with parking

The main ideas of this proposal were to incorporate the pedestrian traffic crossing the road with the bus stop and to provide a gateway and nature scenes in the parking lot. By offering a rest area at the gate way, the bus stop has three different sections: less calm (get on, drop off area), music/radio news room, and calm corner where pedestrians can take a break. They are semi outdoor, indoor, and outdoor spaces which provide various types of microclimate for different seasons. Landscaping plays a role of connecting all these spaces together.
