The proposal is strongly inspired by nature connected to South China Culture, dragging inspiration from Lotus plants, often seen in Chinese Paintings from the South.
 
The design strategy is over-scaling the Lotus plants in order to create structures which offer shelter to citizens and users of the bus public transportation.

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

The natural shape of Lotus 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.
 
Each Lotus plant is equipped with a solar panel on the top, to collect enough energy to recharge the phone batteries of users and light up the LED lighting at night.

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

GROUNDED OBJECT

Product definition

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.
