I'd like the see the structural calculations for this unit. I suggest you stay in school and perhaps one day you might have knowledge.

wow, way too detailed, would this really work? diagrams cannot build buildings

@ SuWeiYin - They probably are a student, and they will someday have more knowledge than they have today, but you will undoubtedly remain an arrogant jerk.

How long will the moving parts remain operative going through four seasons a year? What's the functional significance of all the portions besides simply acting as a shell? Do the materials reference context? I'm dizzy with questions as to how this design is rated so high.

a lot of thought but very poor presentation. In the architecture business this your words must be reflected on your drawings. Patetic design but great ideas.

this project focuses wayyy too much on enclosure. you are already enclosed enough when riding the bus for you cannot open windows and be free, why enclose users beforehand as well??

i really like the concept of being self sustaining !! its like breaking the notion of regular bus stops..materials... i think it will work great..doesnt matter whether it is in utah or paris or honolulu.....

AMAZING concept...AMAZING design...AMAZING work...AMAZING materials...its just gonna be an awesome experience being there...i wish this bus stop really comes up.....

really great work !! a perfect post modernism design which is also climate is nice to see that the students today are so conscious environment unlike the present day architects....this is my personal favorite and would like all the architects to learn from these architects who are the youngest amongst us but the bestest...way to go !!!

UTAH STATE experiences extreme climatic conditions ….
so what is “next” ?

next is sustaiable
next is free movement ’
next is self transforming
next is experience
next is better future??

so we pause for a moment and give ourself a time lapse …for a design that is transforming , developing.and thus gets
adapted to the surrounding and the mass around it..self transforming is the “buzz” word for a form were people
stop to move and change the direction and the way of movement..(mode of transport=bus)
the stop that is designed from utah ,for the people of utah..thus being a part of utah ..a form that evolves from
the surounding movements ..which are:-

1)the climate. (sustainable)
2)type of people (privileges)
3)orientation(open facade from where the bus arrives)

considering the extremely varying weather ,the design is made collapsible .
..a)the fabric shutters – the shutters are design to collect snow during the winter and water when it rains. The collectors collapse down by the weight
of the snow/water collected over it..thus protecting it from cold /rain…
when the water evaporates during spring /summer the fabric moves up(due to elastic coil) and thus providing good ventilation

during winter as the fabric encloses the bus stop, green house effect takes place where in the cool air enters from the bottom (cold air being heavy).
warm air created due to green house effect remain collected due to the CAP effect ,a smaller outlet is provided at the top (as a vent).

b)METAL panels- which are made from bus scrap reflecting the bus in the bus stop itself.
these panels are inclined over the main concrete structure in such a way that it collects the snow during winter which itself acts as an insulator.
also, these panels are not in total contact with the structure, so even if the metal gets heated up in summer, the heat is not transferred to the
internal environment.

c)solar panels-to provide energy to the privilege kiosk

a)considering the students and youth crowd , the privilege kiosk is prvided with mordern amminities such as
wifi, gps..etc
b)on the southern facade(entrance) there is a glass door (opening inside and outside convenient for handicap) ,
c)on the wesern facade when you slide the door to move out(exit) the movement is simple as the applied force is divided by the help of simple pulleys,
the metal panels create an exploded effect( for more details of its working visit ,creating a transforming experience…thus becoming the stop for you to move!!!
