Interesting concept. What are the strips made of?

-great idea for portable bus stop which a city authority can easily place when & where & whenever it needs to especially in times of fair, exhibitions and time of increased visitors

nice concept.......if workable......can be used in many ways and places....

Well done!This could be so cool if is used in big cities.Nice concept!
Posted Sep 07, 2009 7:09 PM by penny

quite interesting. i would be inclined to remove the glass from one side to open the stop up, making it more inviting and safe, and to increase the limited amount of seating space you have provided, but otherwise its quite good.

The bus stop has seatings for 3 people and enough space for more to stand...

Posted Sep 08, 2009 11:09 AM by Tasos

Minimal and modern design, while practical and space-saving. Wherever placed, it adds value to the existing architectural style. Moreover helps contemporary cities in solving some of their major problems. Mind-blowing concept. Good work!

I'm not really sure about the technology involved...a more detailed explaination then just 'folding material' is needed.

Nothing better than a playful everyday life! Reminds me of some ads making big cities look like a big lego playground! Seems also easy to be placed. I also agree with kavbar's advice about removing the one of the 2 glasses. That post is about 10 posts below mine. Great Job!
Posted Sep 09, 2009 10:09 PM by clubdesigner55

If there's a "base" to the folded bus stop, how do disabled individuals access it, to shield themselves from wind and snow and rain. Its an interesteing concept, but not very practical.
Posted Sep 10, 2009 1:09 AM by Spacesculptures

I understand the folding aspect... but for a bus stop there's a lot of wasted space. at most maybe 4 people can sit down while waiting.
Posted Sep 16, 2009 12:09 AM by pitts82

Is this really a folding bus stop? At the end of the day its just a container.

Posted Sep 17, 2009 12:09 PM by JennyYoung

Posted Sep 17, 2009 1:09 PM by tomcarr

maybe you could explain further...if the entire system "bends and folds" couldn't it collapse with a high concentration of people in one spot? And what is the point of the movable strips? Nobody wants to have to assemble their own bus stop.
Posted Sep 17, 2009 3:09 PM by dc0824

Unworkable, impractical, & pointless…. 3 stars?!?….for what?
Posted Sep 18, 2009 8:09 PM by TimothyJ

nice concept but not as perfect and fantastic as some of the comments seem to suggest. How expensive is it to produce a 30 metre strip of material (fibreglass???), is the material very durable or would it easily end back out of shape?
Posted Sep 18, 2009 9:09 PM by matsheffield09

I don't see an idea behind this.

An experimental prototype for interim use of space encompassing unique contemporary design qualities
Posted Sep 22, 2009 5:09 PM by kalliopilimpou

Minimal usage of material and the thought of having the seating and the roof formed from the same material will diffinitly trigger thoughts on our environment and how to save it, everything is connected.
Posted Sep 22, 2009 7:09 PM by Concrete22

very nice looks a greek stile....

nice design! :-)
Posted Sep 22, 2009 9:09 PM by

There's a major issue with this proposal. You cannot fold fiberglass after it has hardened. Especially as thick as you show it to be. So in reality this structure would come prefabricated and not assembled on site. So there's no modularity involved. Still I think it would be easy to fabricate. Other issues that i can think of, the seating area is too small for its overall size. 1.2m, enough space for roughly 2 people (typical chair dimension: 0.55x0.55), and it makes a good graffiti canvas, which is not necessarily a bad thing... Still I can't deny that there was some though involved and the design is above average.
Posted Sep 23, 2009 1:09 AM by mdrakos

It is something unique. Very interesting and new way of thinking. Good work!
Posted Sep 23, 2009 1:09 PM by psymeon@@@

i love it! Simple and modern
Posted Sep 23, 2009 3:09 PM by iliana

this isn't a new way of thinking. and the folding construction steps aren't real steps. how would you attach one end to another? not to mention how can someone in a wheelchair use it?
Posted Sep 23, 2009 6:09 PM by hinkle79

Doesn't look too sturdy to me - why is it better than what's there already??

Very innovative i would really like to see this in Lagos , Nigeria also like its adaptability would definitely suit the tropics
Posted Sep 24, 2009 9:09 AM by montecristo

It is very inventive, at the same time it leaves a lot of questions unanswered. But one of the best projects in the competition never the less!!!!

Posted Sep 24, 2009 1:09 PM by avax1

so what are these flexible strips made of ?
Posted Sep 24, 2009 2:09 PM by steveds

While it may be creative, it is not in keeping with the landscape of Salt Lake City.
Posted Sep 24, 2009 3:09 PM by fhall

Impressive design! If it's made of ecofriendly materials as well, a certain winner.
Posted Sep 24, 2009 6:09 PM by Kensai

Seems like a good design if you don't like to be comfortable. What would be the point of having a bus stop like this when only 1-2 people can be seated? Terrible idea.
Posted Sep 24, 2009 6:09 PM by kcy99

simple buh not that great!!
Posted Sep 24, 2009 7:09 PM by aamna

Thoughtful and pretty straightforward. Aestheticaly pleasing...sleek solution. Bravo!
Posted Sep 24, 2009 9:09 PM by VasilisK

Any body who thinks there was true thought behind this idea needs to realize that they have the IQ of a raisin. Whooaaa.. great idea.. 3 people for a campus of 33 thousand students were it is warm enough to be outside roughly 43.34 percent of the time. Allowing voting for a competition like this is like allowing comments on YouTube. It shows how ignorant most people are. I hope you win.
Posted Sep 24, 2009 11:09 PM by deerskin

It seems to me that there is not enough sitting area...I am not sure about the visibility towards the narrow sides of the 'object'. Will help to see it in context to understand better the intended position in relation to the street. Nice idea, but needs to be developed further.
Posted Sep 25, 2009 2:09 AM by mmendez

Design #342 that is carried by the rendering. There's no seating and it's durability is poor. Can you say 'UV degradation'?
Posted Sep 25, 2009 3:09 AM by o_seanan

A unique, well thought through design. I like the presentation too!

Well done! Really like the process!
Posted Sep 25, 2009 12:09 PM by tzafeta

nice presentation (all non-site specific ones seem to be...), but I think alot of what needs to be said already has. What about a lighting system, visibility for safety issues, lack of seating, the folding makes no sense (is this process done in the field or off-site?), the fact that waiting for a bus inside of this would be like waiting in a shipping container. Nice to look at it, but is it inviting enough for people to want to use is the question.
Posted Sep 25, 2009 1:09 PM by tjfunk79

- too large one-piece parts (the strips) to ship/transport - easy to vandalize - why would i want to fold on site or warehouse. not so practical and easy to bend this material properly. - standing or sitting people must be able to see the upcoming vehicles (bus) and they should be visible from the driver(s). this is a basic golden rule that has not been taken into consideration here. the idea reminded me the foldable/mobile structures for the disaster areas. the idea can be used for charity, aid structures etc...

Folding BusStop

Submitted by tourist on September 07, 2009

Folding BusStop
Six stripes which have exactly the same size (length and width), put next to each other, being stretched and given various shapes form the bus stop. These stripes do not just repeat and vary though. Having the same perimeter when their ends come together, the stripes form a system, consisting of 6 modules. The stripes react to stretching and folding and so does the whole system. A modulated shelter is the new bus stop introduced.
