The ParkStop is a permeable zone designated by its green terrain and banded structure. A wall and roof system made from sustainably harvested lpe wood and steel allows light to filter through while glass inserts prevent rain and snow from penetrating. Photovoltaic panels are integrated within the striated roof to provide power for lighting and an information display system. Planted material on the roof as well as on the ground supply a lush and oxygen-rich setting. The modular roof structure easily accommodates existing trees, as in the case of the prototypical site, or a newly planted tree to enhance the park-like qualities of the stop. Informal clusters of seating provide opportunities for individual or collective rest.
