Overview of Tram Stop and University
Five Prisms One- Tram StopConcept:
The tram stop flows from ramp to seating area to boarding area, with no distinct functional boundaries between them. The grass ramp acts as a second waiting area and the stairs to the boarding area also acts as seats.
Five Prisms Two- Linking the Tram stop to the Context
“All matter is made of light and this matter casts shadow and together the rhythm of light and shadow defines a space.”
Ramp and L-shaped shades are arranged to cast shadows that create a rhythm of light and shade. The columns and rectangular supports under the ramp further this rhythm. Lighting from within the shelter roof gives a sense of mysterious light.

The Ramp linking the University to the Tram Stop and the Sheltered Areas Along the University Mall
The shelters consist of a bimetal roof with pores that open according to the sun’s heat, allowing for a more controlled temperature underneath it. The ramp is covered in grass to visually link the university grounds to the tram stop.
