As Morski writes on the 29th of October, 2020, just how does one turn a bus station into a city info point and make it a green oasis at the same time? Can we have floating bus stations? The ideas of young architects are great, and floating bus stations might well be something that lies on the horizon for the City of Zadar.

An exhibition of works from the interdisciplinary (G) workshop on the topic of reviving neglected urban spaces on the example of this city’s micro-location – the bus station, will open on November the 6th, 2020, at Sime Budinic Square at 12 noon, reports eZadar.

The 27 participants of the ”Gradionica” will work out and seek answers to issues such as how this micro-location can be designed according to the needs of the residents, how to turn the bus station can be turned into a city info point, and at the same time make it a green oasis.

The Society of Architects of Zadar continues to solve black spots in Zadar’s urbanism. After the ideas for the revival of the former barracks of Stjepan Radic, Bili brig and Vruljica, they’re now working on reviving even more neglected city spaces.

Never again have more participants tried to devise a better role for bus stops in the city, and the idea of floating bus stations is certainly something that would make this old Dalmatian city stand out among the rest.

The announcement of the winners and the exhibition are part of the programme to mark the Day of the City of Zadar.

The organisers are the Society of Architects of Zadar, the City of Zadar and the Association Eko-Zadar in co-production with the National Museum of Zadar.
