Interesting, however, 1. How do you propose you cut the grass?? 2. No seating? Why

I like the integration of the landscape with the clean lines of the design. But, it lacks the protection from the elements. Overall nice design

green strip

Submitted by dorindesign on September 18, 2009

The concept was brought to life in the shape taken by the links between the existing green spaces (previously, the bus station had represented a barrier), through the simplest method at our disposal, by using natural and cheap materials that do not incur great production and maintenance costs. Knowing that the users are mainly students, the project creates areas for developing social interpersonal relations, containing, as well, folding benches along the two walls. The map that is projected on the surface of the street using natural light during the day and artificial low energy consuming light, as the glass beholds the role of projection lens, represents an interactive element.
Its sustainability resides in its energetic independence insured by the photovoltaic panels and by the piezoelectric floor, as the energy is stored in batteries that are placed under the bus station. The interactive frame is insured by the digital panel, as well as by the bus trips information poster. The project has been conceived as a social interaction space as well as a reading space, but also as a luminous reference point.
The characteristics of the concept promote a space that wishes to be appropriated, subjectivized, but which, at the same time, manages to maintain the relationship with the proximities, creating a reference point, a dynamic element, able to metamorphose, promoting a “genius loci”.
