BusStopSymbiosis in Porto, Portugal

Posted in architecture by aldorf on August 29, 2010

LIKEarchitects‘ BusStopSymbiosis is one of the five artistic interventions selected by Scott Burnham to emerge in downtown Porto, Portugal as part of Bairro Criativo. Artists were asked to imaging temporary structures for the public space aiming to improve people’s daily life in the city.

“The main criteria were that the proposed ideas had to be simple, quick, and go in and come out with only a light touch on the city – nothing destroyed before they are installed, and no damage when they leave.” Scott Burnham

Enjoy MY View – Bus Stop Intervention

A periscope that is attached to a bus stop. It aims to entertain and reduce the stress of commuters, avoiding the wait/walk dilemma. It transforms the bus stop into a playground by providing a fun diversion while waiting for the bus. At the same time it works as a critical object: by being present, it also aims to initiate a conversation between the commuters about the lack of the real-time information display that let you know how long will take for the bus to arrive.More info: http://www.enjoymyview.net/bustop.html
