Description

The organising concept is of a pleasant path in the forest. A sinuous “daktari path” threads through the landscape, and a bus trip round this picturesque setting to view the housing in its various settings in the forest is intended to replace the pavilion as a sales pitch. The bus stops are subsequently transformed into social platforms once the development is sold.

Jury assessment

The entry raises interesting questions about the assignment: the proposal for a bus stop brings the cliché of an iconic pavilion up for discussion. Although the plan presents urban interfaces, for the rest it has to be qualified as unrealistic.
