What does the post COVID return look like for the daily traveler?
MADE IN SAN JOSE
For some commuting is an essential part of life, maybe even a daily ritual. We noticed that public transportation like bus systems are being greatly affected during this time and could be improved upon for the future. Keeping this in mind, WAV was designed to not only address the effects of COVID, but to also enhance commuter flow and experience within the public transit system.
group members include Sabrina Shell and Dennis Lui
During our observation, we took notice of various COVID related obstacles and everyday issues that the public transportation system was facing. As a result, we saw firsthand how different transit systems were trying to resolve these issues in their own way and how we as designers could help.
In our initial ideation sketches I presented the concept of a bus shelter directing commuter flow through an architectural gesture.
This idea was developed further and eventually turned into our final direction.
WAV's architectural gesture provides an organic separation for on-boarding and off boarding commuter flows. This separation not only creates organization but also reinforces COVID guidelines
for public transit.
