This was a project for designing a bus terminal just outside Bucharest, nearby Baneasa Shopping Center. The site is mostly a parking place, surrounded by shopping centres like Ikea or Carrefour. Being so large a space, the bus station is very easy to miss when coming out of any store. Therefore, I wanted to create something that was radically different from the surroundings, that could easily be noticed and identified. I chose a very flowy form, in contrast to the rectangular form of the buildings there. The structure is steel, and I wanted it to be seen. Therefore, I chose a see-through material, that would allow the passengers to understand the structural system without exposing it too much. It is a perforated steel mesh, meant to tease the viewer.
As for the actual work.. the 3d was done in Rhino 3D, the renderings were done in AutoCAD 2013 and all the post-work was done in Photoshop CS6. Read Less
