Ride Sharing waiting space. Design Provocation No. 6

Topic DevelopmentDesignSafety and securityWomen needs in transport New technologiesNew mobility formsShared modes of mobilityTransport patterns & user needs

DP6 plays with the idea that the kiosk space with a smooth, brightly lit interior could be in contrast on the exterior where the surface is more coarse and tactile - hence the refence to tree bark; albeit abstracted to the cylinder shown in the images

There may be a benefit to such spaces among city architecture since the feeling of woodland could be referenced.

The design is iluminated from the top and intended for one user.

Hi Robin, it could be integrated yes. Perhaps that is slightly different thinking then; do we design a seat for the built environment, that doubles as a waiting space for ride sharing systems? The question might be, in term of the design brief, where is the priority? Lets discuss firther and find an iterative solution. Thanks, Paul.

Should there be a seat inside it to make it easier for elderly?
