Like the smooth, effective interaction of function with nature.

it is an interesting idea to relate to nature and use recycle materials, and also rethink/ redefine the idea of a bus stop.

Playful and unique space. I think I would go there even if I wasn't waiting for a bus.

great effort thinking out of the box, but your renders are poor good elvation and floor plan

interesting idea, but looking at the immensity of the overall plan, I think this would work better as seating outside of a cafe. The problem is, I don't see this as being inducive to waiting for a bus, but more for relaxing and socializing. Too much comfort almost works against the concept of a small bus stop.

the boulder motif is trite and unimaginative and it seems as if you didnt think of this designs functionality at all. When the bus comes, people some people are walking half a block to get on the bus. Also, what if its raining and a group of 4 people want to wait for the bus together? The spatial quality of these elements lacks any sort of flexbility. Good try though

the design captures more of the formality of a new typology of portable toilets rather than inspiring, comfortable spaces. in terms of referencing natural rock formations, it demonstrates more of a cartoon proposal that does not address the real design challenge of sustainable design for architects. Further emphasizes my disappointed in what some architects consider to be responsible sustainable DESIGN.

BUS STOP AS OBJECT WITHIN LANDSCAPE

Submitted by steveds on September 24, 2009

NEXT STOP DESIGN:
A NEW INTERPRETATION TO THE TRADITION:
BUS TOP AS OBJECT WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE:

THE CHALLENGE OF THE BUS STOP DESIGN WAS HOW TO INCORPORATE MORE PUBLIC USAGE OF MASS TRANSPORATION WHILE PROVIDING SUFFICIENT PROTECTION FROM THE NATURAL ELEMENTS. THE APPROACH OF DESIGN WAS TO CREATE AN INTERACTIVE BUS STOP OF INTRIGUE THROUGH VARIOUS SIMPLE OBJECTS AS MASSINGS IN THE LANDSCAPE WHICH WOULD CREATE VARIOUS UNIQUE SPACES OF USER SHELTER AND INVOLVEMENT.

INSPIRATION AND DEVELOPMENT
DUE TO THE INHERENT ABILITY TO PROVIDE SHELTER FROM THE ELEMENTS, THE ROCK AND BOULDER FORMATIONS OF THE UTAH TERRAIN NATURAL WERE A FORM OF INSPIRATION AND DROVE THE DESIGN DEVELOPMENT.

SITSTANDLEANENCLOSUREVISIBILITYPROXIMITY: VARIABLE

DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS
THE BUS STOP IS CREATED AS AN INDIVIDUAL OBJECT WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE AND CAN BE ARRANGED IN VARYING POSITIONS DEPENDING ON THE SPECIFIC SITE LOCATION AND DESIRED APPEARANCE. THE BUS STOP PROVIDES SHELTER FOR THE USER WHILE THE COMPLEMENTARY OBJECTS ACT AS OBJECT ART AND AMENITIES WITHIN THE LANDSCAPE AND OPPORTUNITY FOR VARIABLE INVOLVMENT. THE BUS STOP ALLOWS THE USERS TO CHOOSE THEIR PERSONAL SPACES WHILE WAITING FOR THE MASS TRANSPORATION. A MICROCLIMATE WITHIN THE BUS STOP IS FORMED THROUGH THE USE OF NATIVE LANDSCAPING AND WATER DRAINAGE POOLS. THE OBJECTS ARE CREATED UTILZYING SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS AND CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES. THE OBJECT AS MASSING WITHIN IN LANDSCAPE HOPES TO INCREASE PUBLIC PARTICIPATION OF MASS TRANSPORTATION.
