roof can be accessed, so it needs a balustrade. this cannot be just tacked on because it will change the look entirely. design consequences not fully considered.

already considered - as can be seen from the concept sketches...thats why the grassed area stops short of the roof. it can be handled in other ways then just the standard solution of a handrail or ballustrade. the angle of the sloped area will also be a deterrent...but maybe people going on the roof isnt a bad thing...? public realm (inthe UK and USA is over protected anyway - from skate stoppers on benches to fenced-in courtyards for those lucky few who happen to work in the building its attached too. urban appropriation is the way forward.

I love the idea of on a hot summer day being able to sit on the grass while waiting for a bus, possibly in the middle of a city. Nice idea!

A Skateboarder would love this one.

gotta love the title of this one... definitely the most over used word in architecture

the title is a pun...manifest (the name of my company) and station (i'm sure you can fill in the blanks!)

this is similar to my design "solar radiator" although mine works with a different concept- high thermal mass. I do like the long seat though, its practical and spacious.

tradarch i agree with you

from the beginning you criticized most of the designs and rightfully so, but your design seems more of an imitation of previous submittals than anything innovative as would be expected from someone who has scrutinized others.

The design is a naturally occurring manifestation of the street-scape. a planted green strip rises up from the pavement level to form the canopy roof. beneath the canopy a timber boardwalk strip naturally lifts out of the ground to form the seating.
