“Azalea Eco-Bus Stop” is an eye-catching proposal for the new generation of bus stops located in Nº2: Huancheng Nan Road.
 
The proposal is inspired in flowers and natural elements due to its nice balance between natural and urban character, in direct relation with a park and the river right next to it, but at the same time located in a very consolidated urban space.

The proposal is strongly inspired by local nature, dragging inspiration from Azalea flowers, often seen in not only in Jiaxing City, but also in Zhejiang Province.

The design strategy is over-scaling the leaves of Azalea flower in order to create structures which offer shelter to citizens and users of the bus public transportation.

The seating features and flower pots within the proposal, are also inspired by nature, designed as bending flower stems where people can sit on.

To complete a very nature-driven proposal, floor graphics are added to the design, mimicking the shadows of the Azalea leaves projected on the ground.

The natural shape of Azalea plants is actually perfect to act as rainwater collectors, allowing us to reuse the water for the irrigation of the new vegetation decorating the bus stop.

The design of this Bus Stop is not only thought as a sheltering structure, but also as eye-catching and recognizable Urban Landmark for the city of Jiaxing.

Street Intervention

What is an street intervention?
This is the smallest scale of interventions that takes place in the public realm of a city, related to the altering of a portion or a whole street or square, whether vehicular or pedestrian, by adding or installing new alienated elements to the existing configuration of the street.
 
This typology intervenes existing urban settings by occupying the ground of a given area and by acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, catalyzing social interactions. It is a tactical intervention with a non-territorial nature, keeping a clear formal and aesthetic distinction from the existing surroundings.
 
The main objective of this typology is to trigger a massive public interest to the place through a strong visual impact, usually of a temporary nature, encouraging the rise of high public affluence during a specific period of time, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
