City of Phoenix
These bus stops were developed in collaboration with the City of Phoenix and T.Y.LIN International during the summer of 2017. This project started as a competition in the design school where the winners were granted the internship. Two bus stops were developed which feature modular parts that are interchangeable. Prototypes are made of the bus stops and are being optimized for mass manufacturing. Projected to hit the streets of Phoenix in summer 2019.
The City of Phoenix
Phoenix is one of the hottest cities in the US with over 300 days of sun and summer days easily reaching 110 degrees. This makes it very difficult for bus riders to stay cool and comfortable. Our top priority when designing this bus stop was to maximize shade and airflow to keep the bus stop as cool as possible. Along with this we had to consider safety, manufacturing, cost among other factors.
We conducted some research on bus stops and were provided papers with research on shade analysis.
