Mobile Transit Lounge by Jasmax

Winner of the 'Open Work In Progress' by the Auckland Architecture Association, the judges said: 

“The Mobile Transit Lounge is a welcome addition to the urban fabric of the city, with its distinctive folded form that has the potential to play out at different scales. It also offers a fresh identity to the changing face of transport in Auckland.”

The structure, which is made of a pleated box of structural cross-laminated timber planes that unfold acts as both a viewing platform, lounge, cafe and bike hire pavilion.

Additionally an interactive multimedia noticeboard is included inviting engagement from it's users.

The proposed design encourages people to explore the city through public transport, whilst providing a space of engagement.
