此概念限制了外部面板类型的数量,从而提供了节省成本的机会。此外,广告亭内壳是平面底座以及用于静态或数字广告弯曲的侧板。外壳由玻璃和金属表皮组成,形成标志性,同时保护内部机器免受环境和好奇的游客的影响。

San Francisco Public Works

The AmeniPODS look to sculptural simplicity as a guide for design and engineering decisions. Their modeled, polished exterior cladding creates a connected family of amenities that take on different appearances depending on the nature of their surroundings reflected on the units. The specific shaping of the form navigates accessibility requirements, breaks down the kiosk massing and maximizes the artistic reflections of people and place. The upper curves seamlessly continue below to form the shaped, protective concrete base. The re-envisioned restrooms improve upon performance and sustainability with multiple updates including the addition of interior skylights, low-flow fixtures and rainwater collection for washing the exterior shell.

The new urban public amenities come at a time of post-pandemic rebirth of street life in San Francisco. Today, safe hygienic public space is of the utmost importance. The new amenities represent an essential part of a larger solution to the continuing city challenges. They literally reflect San Francisco’s diverse neighborhoods with their deep-rooted history while creating sculptural street furniture additions to our urban landscape that are forward-looking.
