Porscheplatz Bus station

Enriching the environment

The bus station on Porscheplatz, which is in close proximity to the Essen city hall, is an important hub in the city’s public transport network. The KZA team was commissioned by the Essen public transport operator to give the bus station a makeover. A lightweight aluminium roof in the form of a coloured wave hangs from the bridge construction supported by sloping pylons, runs beneath the entire bridge and “swings” a few metres on both sides into the “outside space”.
