Central Bus Station (ZOB) Pforzheim in Germany by METARAUM Architekten BDA

Friday, November 11th, 2016

Article source: METARAUM Architekten BDA

An Urban Landmark

Respectfully set aside from the train station, the new central bus station (Zentraler Busbahnhof or ZOB) is an addition to the historic station building of Pforzheim. It constitutes a concise urban landmark, giving new form to a formerly barren area east of the station building. The historic style of the latter is now supplemented by a contemporary design: The roof segments’ curved edges are derived from typical radii and loops of vehicle movements and road curves. But not only the design had to fulfil highest demands, also the materials of the ZOB were chosen with regard to stability, weather resistance and most of all formability. Thus a total of 6,500 m2 AQUAPANEL® Cement Board Outdoor were used for the exterior ceilings and an exterior wall – as a water- and mould-resistant, robust solution.

Can Ramis in Alcúdia, Spain by Pedro Quero Arquitectos

Sunday, November 6th, 2016

Article source: Pedro Quero Arquitectos

PORTA NOVA (a new Gateway)

How should we design a place facing the remains of Alcudia’s historical walls? What action to take opposite to the historical fortifications in there since times of Jaume II? A reinterpretation of the walled citadel and the site´s symbolism gave us the key to solve the proposal.

Piezoelectric Trolleybus Gardens in Belgrade, Serbia by Margot Krasojevic Architects

Saturday, July 16th, 2016

Article source: Margot Krasojevic Architects

Trolleybus Central Terminus Studentski Trg.

Trolleybuses are electric vehicles which makes them more environmentally friendly than fossil fuel or hydrocarbon-based vehicles when implemented in the city. The power is not free as it has to be produced at centralised power plants, however, it is produced more efficiently making it more responsive to pollution control rather than individual vehicles exhausting noxious gases at street level. A trolleybus draws power from overhead wires using spring-loaded trolley poles made from wood and metal, which complete the electrical circuit by transferring electricity from a “live” overhead wire to the control and the electric traction motors of the trolley bus, a type of current collector.Each trolley pole, trolley bus elevation, tire and overhead wire will contain 3d printed piezoelectric cells generating electrical energy from pressure deformation in the semiconductors for on-board electronics. The city of Belgrade uses trolleybuses as one of it’s major modes of public transport with an extensive route stretching across the city and the suburbs.

Article source: Bahadır Kul Architects

The intercity bus terminal was designed on the way to Aksaray, 5km away from the city center , due to the existing  bus terminal’s incompatibility to  handle the needs. The convenience of the linkage to the local road of Nigde and to the city center were the reasons why this area is preferred.

BUS STATION CANOPIES in Rotterdam, Netherlands by MAXWAN architects + urbanists

Thursday, March 5th, 2015

Article source: MAXWAN architects + urbanists

Large budgets and enormous amounts of energy are spent on the upgrading of major Dutch railway stations in Amsterdam, The Hague, Utrecht and Rotterdam. The efforts at creating quality environments related to public transport should not be limited to the station building itself. By paying close attention to all public space surrounding the railway hubs, the promise of true Transport Oriented Development can be kept alive. Maxwan’s plans for Rotterdam Central District emphasize the quality of that public space.
