The bus terminal proposed is in sector 21 Dwarka, Delhi and is supposed to be an international bus terminal. The project focuses on improving the current scenario of transit hubs by implementation of controls through design.
Also upgrading the transit hub as a community space so that it relates and responds for and to the society surrounding it. Through research and case studies several issues were realized in the existing typology of terminals. Hence by trying to resolve them, what has been achieved is:
hi your thesis is amazingm doing the same projectcan you plz send me dwg files of your ur project for the referenceit will be really helpful for meu can mail me in[email protected]thank you
The most common mode of transport among the general public are the buses which result in the need for proper infrastructure for bus terminals as well as bus stops. Bus terminals, in particular, require planning in terms of the spaces allotted for the bus parking and ticketing counters to segregate the inter and intra city bus services.
For cities, this presented a problem. The business model of the new, smaller carriers worked in part because they lacked the overhead of dedicated bus stations. Passengers were picked up and dropped off right on the street at specific locations. As more carriers popped up and their popularity surged, the number of buses idling for passengers became a new cause of congestion. Many cities have been unable to solve this problem. New York, for example, already has two large, overflowing bus terminals and the smaller inter-city carriers continue to embark from curbside. Washington DC, however, has been saved by Union Station.
Once we were committed to this design, the biggest challenge was constructing the merged ovoid pavilion. There are many examples of successfully executed complex architectural geometries out there in the world today, but few of them were done quickly and on a small budget. The design team attempted multiple approaches to the problem, but the most cost effective was also the most traditional: enlisting a shipbuilder. The details of this part of the project are explained in an accompanying essay, but suffice to say the integrity of the overall approach hinged on the success of this particular component. Without it our Zen garden would revert back to a parking deck.
With the increasing demands for more private transport, and the decreasing amounts of publictransport in our country, which has resulted in poor air quality and hence the probable solution to this is designing proper transport facilities.Transportation is one of the most important requirements for the aid of communication from one place to other for visiting purpose or in the sense of tourism. A number of factors like the convenience from one place to the other, promotion of tourism, for communication between places etc. Have predicted the importance of planning such as roadways industries in the as sense of bus terminals.Transportation system improves the social, economic, industrial and commercial progress and further transforms the society into an organized one. It is one of the essential services, vital force for determining the direction of development.

This is the second post in a series considering the role of psychological research within the context of an architectural practice. The goal of this series is to provide answers to six key questions, namely, the why, what, who, when, how and where, of design focused psychological research.
It is important to acknowledge that not all architects are of the opinion that psychological research is necessary, and some consider it rather burdensome given the various other issues that require attention in an architectural practice. It is therefore understandable that not all architects will engage in it. There is, however, a growing number of architects who believe that social and psychological research will play an increasingly important role in the future of architectural practice, not by replacing intuition and experience in the design process, but rather by supporting it. The basis for this belief is the assumption that it is in the best interest of architects, clients and building users to better understand the psychological and social dimensions of the designed environment and how design decisions influence human well-being and performance. Although it is beyond the scope of this post to address all the applications and nuances of this field of research, a brief definition of psychosocial research as it relates to architectural practice will be provided and reference will be made to a number of areas in which this research has proven to be beneficial.

Hello sir, I am currently doing my thesis on Bus terminal which is a part of a Multi Modal Transit Hub in Delhi,India. I wanted to know how can urban spaces like these affect a users behaviour and how can we design spaces which can change as well as adapt to users?
A bus station is a structure where city or intercity buses stop to pick up and drop off passengers. While the term bus depot can also refer to a bus station, it refers to a bus garage. A bus station is larger than a bus stop, which is usually simply a place on the roadside where buses can stop. It may be intended as a terminal station for several routes, or as a transfer station where the routes continue.
Bus stations and terminals are a significant element in the operation of bus services. Their design and location affect the efficiency of a transport system, and its impact on other road users. Bus stop design can encompass many styles, materials, locations, and purposes. Some cities need bus stops that can accommodate large numbers of people, while others may need to ensure that the structure can withstand the elements and offer protection to waiting passengers.
The wet areas and the technical buildings are configured at the same spot for both terminals. The terminal management office, agency offices, security offices, kiosks, prayer rooms, restrooms and technical offices are within the passenger foyer of the county terminal.
The terminal of urban transport is on the east, the most contractual side of longitudinal parcel: tram station, five platforms for urban transport buses, taxi stand, a large square with dominated roof surface and oblique high wall which points toward the entrance of the building and also separates the platforms from external access. Besides the two-storey high station Aula and communication areas, there are all necessary trade-service catering facilities and transportation offices. The wavy roof affords cover throughout the terminal, which gives users a feeling of sailing on long, low waves.
The cooling effect of plants is directly measurable. However, in order to achieve a sustainable growth environment the fundamentals of biology has to be supported rather than suppressed. The architectural concept was as a result developed to incorporate living systems that compete, change, establish its own time, rythm and biological composition, as a continuation of spatial and technological adaptability in the relationship between the natural and built environment.
The three parts of the project represents the reflective phases of a holistic approach. First determining the focus through investigating local vegetation and biological processes of Plants & Biodiversity, then the programmatic extents through an infrastructural strategy in Capacity & Flow, until establishing an architectural approach in the interface of the Assembled & Grown.
The project engages with conveying ideas and knowledge to passengers by using the entire terminal as an educational space of structure and biological morphology. Researchers and passengers encounter each other in the field and the waiting areas become viewing platforms covering the cultivation areas. While waiting for the bus you feel the immidiate cooling and air purification effect of plants covering the platform and may learn that you have been eating your lunch on top of a vault containing the biodiversity of the entire continent. The project is not merely about employing a green comfort enhancing strategy, it is about how the potential is presented and made relevant for the general public.
The idea of succession is perceived through time in order to understand the temporal development of the project. Over time it grows to become more of a sprawling public garden and knowledge hub than a bus terminal. With the potential of developing new traits and species adapted to the urban context, specialized plants can be distributed to homes across the city using the flexible bus infrastructure, making the project a catalyst that reaches far beyond its local context.
