Conceptual design for a central bus hub

DKFS with ARUP London have been collaborating on the concept design for a bus transport hub in Germany.
A series of ETFE kites forms the multifunctional roof that shelters the busy hub and vibrant urban space. At night they become lit elements that feature the public realm and express the structural system of the roof as well as its dynamic form. The topography of the 'under-belly' of the roof sculptures the space underneath and accentuates the notion of the place as an important public space.
