User-Centered Bus Stop Design - progettato per il progetto TInnGO da Sanjeevi Suganthi Pugazhenthi

Topic DesignTransport patterns & user needs

Nell'esplorare il concetto di maggiore usabilità, questo progetto offre tre diverse opzioni di seduta. 1) Viene fornito un set di sedili individuali ispirati a 'Clessidra'. Questi sedili possono essere configurati in diversi gruppi secondo le esigenze degli utenti, per facilitare le loro conversazioni. Questi sedili scorrono lungo un binario guida, incorporato sotto la pavimentazione come un binario del tram sulle strade. 2) Tre posti a sedere prioritari sono dotati di 'Sit to stand' per le persone che ne hanno bisogno, specialmente gli anziani. 3) Una panchina esterna con finitura a specchio è fornita come arredo urbano che riflette il paesaggio urbano circostante (ispirato dal 'Cloud Gate di Chicago'). Questo concetto estende l'utilità della fermata dell'autobus a persone al di là dei passeggeri. Questa panchina servirebbe come 'rapida sosta' per persone che fanno esercizio all'aperto o come 'punto d'incontro'. Poiché più persone usano la fermata dell'autobus, incoraggia i passeggeri in attesa a non sentirsi distaccati.

Although I like the open design very much, I am worried about what will happen if its raining or snowing. The seats on the back of the stop and the small seats at the front will probably get wet, freeze and/or be covered in snow during the changig season. So it is not likely that they will be used in such situations and therefore only three seats will remain. Do you see any possibility to counteract that?

Shaped with a sense of subtlety, this is not a loud, brash form and would probably lend itself well to most city environments.

You need to resolve the water flow from the roof. It was agreed that integral gutters would be used to guide water down and away. The roofline itself needs to be changed to adjust the direction that water may flow, and indeed shaped in order to control the motion of the water.

The colours need more energy.

The seats are playful, their shape is no, nor are they designed for easy handling. Given that these are possible to arrange around the embedded rail, what are they made from? How does one move them?

Hi Sanjeevi

I like the playfulness of this.

How would you imporve the visibility of the moveable seats fo rpeople with visual problems.

Such a beautifyl design. It would work in large spaces for sure.  Not scaleable to the average pavement however.

A nice idea that bus stops can also be resting places and meeting places, for any uers, not just the bus passengers.  The moveable seats also introduces a sense of 'fun' - they could be stepping stones or even djembes!
