I also thought of using a xeriscaping approach--good idea. I think the cylinder shape could work, but maybe making it large enough so that the floor isn't too round would be cool.

I don't understand how the space would work either internally for people in wheelchairs, or externally for the rooftop garden. Why is it elevated?

Other than throwing a green roof on top of it, how is this different than the bus stations in Curitiba, Brazil? @amberbski- I assume that this would work something like the bus stops in Curitiba. The elevated platform provides a step-less entry into the bus and each tube has a lift to facilitate wheelchair access. The reason for this configuration is that the tubes are also ticket stations, where you need a ticket to get onto the platform. This makes boarding the buses faster, and important issue with a system as large and well used as theirs.

Green Roof Bus Station

Submitted by linzh on May 15, 2009

This design is based on the bus stations in Curitiba, Brazil with addition of LED lights and grass/flowers on the roof.

The LED lights start to flash when the bus is three minutes away and stay solid color when the bus is a minute away. The grass roof helps to make the environment greener! :)

A big display of bus timetables and route maps is included inside the waiting area.
