Pergola Bus Stop
Invitation by HOMEmag to design a bus stop for Athens
Assistant architect: Odysseas Diakakis - Damianidis
Featured: Athens Voice - HOME, October 2008

The bus stop is a metal structure for climbing plants. The idea is based on a nature and technology mix. The bus stop occupies an area of the pavement which is illuminated with led light in the night, and during the day it becomes a projection screen with nature imagery. The structure is partly covered in translucent tinted glass in blue and green, and is covered in green leaves. Climbers intertwine around the metal branches and create a shaded, cool space, something between a pergola and a vitraux structure. The city fills with green spots, and is alternatively illuminated at night.
