General Terms

Today designing a quality, comfortable, and creative space for a city dweller is an actual topic in the professional environment. Therefore, it is necessary to develop a project of a bus stop.

The project should come up as a result of a holistic approach to urban land improvement and unconventional interpretation of the task of creating comfortable surroundings for the residents of the quarter. Thus, with the aim of increasing aesthetic appeal and an ability to design a unique image of a certain courtyard, especially in the territories inhabited by children and senior citizens, the project is desired to envisage a barrier-free environment for a bus stop.

It is also necessary to provide creating interesting compositions, use of advanced materials, artificial relief formation, uniform method of form making, differentiation of surfaces in terms of types of coating and color. Proposals regarding small architectural forms, equipment, illumination and mood lighting, that should be designed in a unified theme and style solution, are to be developed throughout the project.

Combination of the elements of modern landscape design should expand on the idea of establishing an inimitable complex environment, which can perform both transit and information functions. Besides, it is necessary to enable creating conditions for free comfortable movement and rest for physically challenged and limited mobility people.

Architectural-planning solution of the bus shelter should comply with the principles of functional zoning, rational arrangement of objects and improvements, pedestrian and vehicular traffic safety. When designing, it is essential to take relief and form of the site into account.

There are two tasks to be solved in the course of planning the bus stop: simultaneous concentration of several functions and providing for pedestrian transit zones.

Participants must decide on and name the materials of which it is supposed to build the conceived objects and elements of small architectural forms.

General Requirements and Conditions

One should start designing with the urban layout analysis.

A fragment of the general plan should develop the idea of holistic approach to designing a bus shelter and contain additional information about beautification features (equipment, lighting, surfaces); references and dimensions ought to be signed as well. Visualization of the project should convey the idea behind it. One picture ought to be major, 2-3 – subsidiary (one of them may be a look from above).

General layout of the presentation is to be fulfilled considering the necessity of structurization the content into information blocks in order to simplify its reception; fundamental principles of arrangement and graphic design should be taken into account.

Participants are expected to develop the competition project in accordance with the attached design template. All the entries should be fulfilled in line with the general plan, attached to the task.

Functional Structure

The complex of the bus stop may include zones and elements of various functional use:
  1. Pedestrian transit zone – benches, litter bins, fencing;
  2. Passages and parking spaces for vehicles and cycles; parking columns and spheres, parking facilities for bikes, parking sheds;
  3. Softscape (flowerbeds, trees, grass lawns, bushes, decor arrangements of inert materials);
  4. Signboard, denoting the place of the bus stop;
  5. Shed, protecting from precipitation;
  6. Elements of lighting;
  7. Elements of information design: billboard, information stands, etc.

Final combination can be defined by the project designer independently according to their concept.

List of Approximate Graphic Materials for the project

  1. Fragment of a general plan, showing equipment, small architectural forms, elements of plant arrangement, types of coating, etc. (with graphic symbols);
  2. Facades;
  3. Design sections (not less than two);
  4. Three-dimensional pictures of small architectural forms;
  5. 3D perspective visualization (2-3 points);
  6. Proposals regarding small architectural forms (benches, litter bins, elements of street lighting, arbors) – plan, facade, design section, 3D picture;
It is also allowed to include schemes and texts that illustrate development of ideas and proposals explaining the designer’s intent.
