The idea starts from a research studying the human behavior at bus stops.
Passenger Waiting Behaviour at Bus Stop -
University Utsunomiya - Japan.
The study shows that the level of frustration increases incrementally along the waiting time.
The study also show that the perception of time and stress decrease if the users are engaged in activities, which more often happens when they are sitting down.
The idea is to built an explorable device, that provides as many different sitting opportunities as possible, in order to generate interaction with the bus stop itself as well as among the people waiting.
The whole bus stop is made of metal prefab elements to allow easy maintenance and durability.
The system is adaptable
The platforms can be assembled in different layouts to suits different locations and different users' needs.
