Living in today’s digital realm, most of our experiences have been through 2-D screens. We question what can be done to make the “physical” more convenient? We propose a new mode of shopping that can operate dynamically to accommodate the needs of differing profiles of people. Incorporating the nature of bus terminal, we consider the circulation as the narrative meaning of both spatial and shopping experiences.
By leveraging the existing infrastructure, this proposal transforms the terminal into a destination where people spend their time on spontaneous activities, while also fulfilling the original purpose of travel. Through this new spatial system of insertion and extension from the existing, our goal is to reactivate parts of the site that are currently underused and to create improved circulation flows. Our proposal suggests points of intersection between different users as an integration of architectural space, materials, programs, and users, within spaces of diverse characteristics.
