Was designed by Space Matrix Design Consultants Pte Ltd, Adajan Terminal, bus terminal, that located in India. Transport facilities are complex functional machines with the ability to build and support the cities around them. They are traditionally seen as gateways and designed as transiting facilities, for passenger movement and often dissociate from their surrounding urban frameworks due to its extensive infrastructure requirements.
The 5-acre site is located next to the River Tapi across from the old city. Along its eastern edge runs a 9m high bund that protects it from floods. The strategic location of this bus terminal provides opportunities for the architecture to connect the property to its neighbourhood and the city to its river. The design team therefore conceived the entire project as a raised ground plane that extends out to the bund and the river. The new ground plane is a vibrant city park accessible by the city dwellers and the transiting passengers. Inspired by the famous Step Wells of Gujarat, the ‘inverted Step Well’ metaphorically would once again draw the community closer to water.
