Azalea Eco-Bus Stop
Jiaxing | Zhejiang Province | China
This proposal is part of a series of 2 renovation of bus stops inspired in flowers in Huancheng Nan Road in Jiaxing, Zhejiang Province, China.
“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.

It is an inhabitable architectural object inserted on top of an existing urban environment, but alienated from its surroundings.
This architectural object intervenes in the space by touching the ground and acting as an accessible and multifunctional platform, allowing people to stand on top of it and interact directly.
The main objective of this conceptual prototype is to trigger a massive public interest to the place, encouraging the rise of high public affluence, becoming a remarkable virtual landmark that attracts customers and cultivates important human dynamics and commercial activity.
