Ideas for a athenian busstop

  • Public space or more particularly its utilitarian objects, such as benches, kiosks, bus stops, etc., are elements that define mainly the level of a city's development and modernization. One could even argue that they can influence or even shape the mood of a society.

    With this concept in mind and using a purely visual approach, two armchairs and a table lamp, enlarged in order to refer to the scale of the city, are unexpectedly encountered on the sidewalk, serving the necessary functions of the stand.

  • Ο δημόσιος χώρος και ιδιαίτερα τα χρηστικά του αντικείμενα, όπως παγκάκια, περίπτερα, στάσεις λεωφορείων κλπ., είναι στοιχεία που σε κύριο λόγο χαρακτηρίζουν την τάση της πόλης για εξέλιξη και εκσυγχρονισμό. Επίσης θα μπορούσε κανείς να υποστηρίξει ότι επηρεάζουν ή και ακόμα διαμορφώνουν τη διάθεση των πολιτών.

    Σε αντιστοιχία με αυτή την αντίληψη, και με καθαρά εικαστική αντιμετώπιση, δυο πολυθρόνες και ένα λαμπατέρ, υπερμεγέθη ώστε να αναφέρονται στην κλίμακα της πόλης, συναντώνται αναπάντεχα επάνω στο πεζοδρόμιο, εξυπηρετώντας τις απαραίτητες λειτουργίες της στάσης.
