Program: Bus shelter
Gross floor area: 15 m2
Glass is one of the few very hard and strong materials that are transparent. The disbelief that something that looks the opposite of solid can carry heavy loads gives the material something mysterious which makes it very appealing to us. It seems to dematerialise in front of our eyes but touching the hard cold surface makes us aware that it is very much there. To show the transparent properties of glass, the design of this bus shelter uses different layers of glass with different levels of transparency, creating a surreal composition of transparent and seemingly floating elements.
