Truck Stop: Truck, Stop

Truck Stop: Truck, Stop is a visionary project aiming at reducing traffic congestion and accidents in urban areas by establishing designated stops for trucks, creating virtual barriers for safer navigation. The concept is inspired by the functionality of truck transporters, which can assemble and disassemble themselves into multiple cars.

The future truck stop envisions trucks as mobile warehouses, eliminating the need for separate storage centers. By creating truck stops for fueling and redistribution in each city, the system will efficiently serve urban areas, reducing the number of trucks on the road and minimizing traffic congestion.

Located near Highway I80 and serving the cities of Reno and Fernley, the proposed ring-shaped building ensures efficient circulation and eliminates the need for warehouses. All goods will be stored in moving trailers, with vehicle activities taking place inside the building and green spaces outside for people to enjoy.

Trucks and vans enter the building through separate entrances, with distinct circulation spaces for each. The building features box conveyor belts for interchange and redistribution of packages, as well as resting spaces for drivers, including all-gender restrooms, sleep cabins, and a gym.
