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.

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

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.

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.
