DESIGN

The Mills 50 Bus Shelter Prototype is a transit shelter solution for the Mills 50 Main Street District of Orlando, Florida. A lack of protected bus stops combined with an emerging interest in promoting a district-wide brand and streetscape led to the creation of a new interactive mass-transit experience.

The prevailing landscape of vintage illuminated signage presents the opportunity to create an easily recognizable network of shelters that can serve to unify the district as a whole while simultaneously functioning as a wayfinding element to motorists and transit riders alike. Utilizing an economy of form, the L-shape of the design provides shelter from the elements with a compact footprint suitable placement in the right of way. The orientation of the L-shape corresponds to the flow of traffic.

A minimal steel structure supports the shelter, elegantly touching the ground at each column. Translucent solid polymer panels form a vandal-resistant cladding for the shelter allowing the structure to read-through the skin in the daylight. On the ground a saw-cut line in the concrete further defines the space of the shelter. The clean lines and simplicity of the efficient design has resulted in a structure that is cost competitive with the current structures in production.

Light is integral to the design, as a source of illumination and as an interactive component that defines the space of the shelter on the street. The shelter responds with a change in color and light as riders wait, board and exit buses. Likewise, the shelter responds to passing buses, pedestrians and even other occupied bus shelters in the district. Light punctuates the interactive component of the shelter.

Utilizing thin lighting technology that emits little heat and requires minimal maintenance, the shelter is able to maintain a narrow cross section. Cost of operation is a fraction of traditional lighting systems. Light intensity has been designed to make these shelters easily-recognizable without interfering with vehicular traffic.

The Mills 50 Bus Shelter Prototype promotes mass-transit through a visual expression of the transit network and interactive experience of its use. It is through this experience that mass-transit is advertised in a positive light and a new streetscape emerges in the Mills 50 Main Street District.
