Stainless Steel - On the Buses

Designed by Arup Associates, Vauxhall Cross Bus Station in London features a 200m long, 12m wide, stainless steel 'ribbon'. This rises as a 'super long' cantilever at its northern nodal end.

The undulations along the length of the canopy reflects the frequency of bus stands. Each dip of the canopy provides a seating refuge and raking support for the canopy above, which rises over the height of double-decker buses.

Steel construction was the obvious choice as the most appropriate material to deal with the exposed conditions and durability requirements. Steel is also fully sustainable as it offers end of life recyclability.
