Bus Station Of The Future Lets Riders Buy Snacks, Recharge Phone [Pics]
Marc Aurel's 'Station Diderot' project is a public transit shelter that makes life easier by providing lots of services in one place.
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.

During a webinar on Thursday July 13th at 10am, the PSFK research team will be presenting findings from our most recent report, Future of Manufacturing. For this project, we looked at how brands and organizations can meet elevated consumer needs and combat increased market competition by leveraging connected technologies that give total insights to manage their end-to-end operations and the opportunity to integrate cutting-edge technologies to reinvent supply chains.
Christina Agapakis, creative director at Ginkgo Bioworks, discussed how she uses her background in science and collaborates with engineers, designers, artists and social scientists to explore the many unexpected connections between microbiology, technology, art and popular culture.
