A recurrent and noticeable symbol
In order to design this building, a characteristic, modern and poetic image has been sought that would allow an instant identification of the building within its urban context. The idea of a singular building repeated at each bus terminal location will afford coherence and homogeneity to the transportation network of Oyala.
A trip through the city
Bus transport is considered as a principle means from one point to another, but also as a trip through this new city, conceived of and built to be visited.
A soaring bird, a protective wing
Due to the meteorological characteristics of Equatorial Guinea, it was deemed necessary to work on a cover that would protect travellers from the rain and sun during their wait. This idea of a roof shaped like the outstretched wings of a bird offers both a functional and aesthetic resolution for this program. These wings generate an image and a symbol that corresponds to that of this new city which could be used for all the bus terminals as well as for the corporate image of this urban transportation service.
