The basic design intent of the “AdaptByMany” bus shelter was a combination of adapting to local conditions, transferring designers’ aesthetic ideas to users and functionality in its primal intent. Simplicity has been further emphasized with the use of the three basic materials for construction – wood, steel and concrete. With the use of the basic construction components, which can adapt to almost any given situation, the possibilities of different shelter designs are almost endless.
The “AdaptByMany” bus shelter can be used almost anywhere around the globe, as its design is functional, feasible and elegant. Fabrication of its components can be a matter of local production or it can stimulate international trading cooperation.
Furthermore, the intent of the “AdaptByMany” bus shelter was also to show the utilization of Revit LT 2013 as the main software for designing the shelter and to show, how convenient it can also be for these types of projects. All components (Families) were modeled within the trial version of Revit LT. All presentation posters were done in Revit LT as well. (The only addition was the use of Revit 2013 for producing renders, which also shows the connection between programs.)
The components of the shelter are all parametric and adaptable. Most of the components are of Generic Model Face Based family type, so they are easily modeled and can be adapted by different modeling techniques.
Simple “step-by-step” modeling instructions: “First you insert the roof support, in between you insert the commercial panel, place some sitting benches around, take care for trash and additional signage, model roof, and add gutter and voilà the bus shelter is there!”
DesignByMany is a challenge based design technology community. Users post challenges to the community along with their design source files. The community can then post responses with their own source files to solve the challenge. They can also comment on the challenge and interact with other designers throughout the process.
