FEASIBILITY STUDY FOR A MULTIMODAL BUSSTATION | DIRECT COMMISSION

Research by design has shown that Iasi – the second largest city in Romania – is structured by detached modernist ensembles surrounded by green space. GREEN CITY IASI. This insight has led to a hub not only designed as an ecological node of public transportation but also as a station that is actually located in a green park. The focus is on the quality of public space (both the interior and the exterior).
By combining a sloping distribution building (where the waiting areas and commercial functions are included) with a slightly sloping plateau on which all platforms and lanes are present, there is no conflict between pedestrians and traffic fluxes.
The cross-linking and networking of all functions (transportation infrastructure, parking, hotel, offices and service buildings) in one complex creates a synergy between the various functions that gives the whole a critical mass. The appearance and positioning of the buildings ensure that the project serves as a landmark and gateway to the city.
