function bus station, canopy, kiosk, shelter
contributed by Kris_Leenders

We know them all: the 'one-design-fits-all' bus shelters, the same in each city, on each location. Moritz & Simon, on the other hand, designed a bus shelter that responds to the location's distinctive atmosphere. This location is the Vlaamsepoort, where the Brussels canal separates the posh city centre from the impoverished districts of Molenbeek. The canopy reflects the water surface, involving the canal in the experience of the city. Structural engineer Laurent Ney thought out the steel structure without any bolt-fixed element, thus leaving the listed bluestone balustrade intact.
