responsive transport environments (Gardner, Hauesler, Mahar)
In an urban environment where bus stops have become exposed and vulnerable ‘non-places’, Nexus aims to create a place of refuge and efficiently display dynamic bus information as well as online information in an interactive way. The scheme is concerned with reinterpreting the function of a bus stop, and reinterpreting the sense of ‘waiting time’ by turning it into functional time. Nexus is a new community hub for online content, dynamic bus information, place-making and local site specific information. NFC sensors placed within the structure communicate with phones ato grab recent music, online, social news and creates a collage or billboard of recent news and entertainment curated by the bus stop users.
