Station Diderot is an experimental bus station project by designer Marc Aurel at Boulevard Diderot in Paris. This multi-purpose space provides an idea of what bus stations of the future could look like. The public transit shelter is no longer just dedicated to waiting for a bus, it offers lots of other services too and promotes social interaction.
Station Diderot is a place of social innovation in the provision of services. It allows people to have a coffee while they’re waiting, borrow a book, listen to music, recharge their phone, purchase food to take away, buy a bus ticket, get information about the neighborhood, and rent a bike. It also features an adaptive and energizing light that is regulated both day and night.
