"More than waiting for the bus" proposes to equip sites near bus stops with street furniture. Based on an orthogonal grid, the furniture is installed in 50cm square modules. Each piece of furniture uses one or more of these modules. The furniture is integrated into the ground by means of a male-female system under each element. The design of the furniture follows the style of today's bus stops, combining a metal structure with a wood cladding. Thanks to this system of modules, each site is equipped according to the uses and needs of the district. We chose the Langelier station as an example, connecting the metro and bus networks. This hub provides an opportunity to offer new services to users. There are basic modules (benches, plant elements, bike racks) and some more specific ones, such as the vegetable basket dispenser. This dispenser is part of an ecological approach aimed at reinvesting local agricultural production in city centers. With this system, orders placed in the morning are delivered the same day and available in the evening.

This proposition is rich in references as it makes good use of the famous territorial grid imagined by the Italian collective Superstudio in the 1970s. The presentation is very beautiful. It could be transposed to most sites, but if the components were indeed transferable, the designers did not clearly formulate what would make it an environmental commitment.
