Merit Award : London Bus

Design Brief:

Our group has chosen the London Double-decker bus because it has a long history and it was one of the first buses that were constructed. The iconic bus was even present in the Beijing Olympics, symbolizing the hand-over of the Olympic Flame to London.

Its vintage design also impressed us. The traditional hop on, hop off platform, the absence of doors and a traditional driving seat, are the unique characteristics of the bus. We also added our own element of design to it by removing the upper deck so that people would enjoy the scenery as the bus rumbles down the street. These designs presented a challenge to us but it made us realize the uniqueness of this bus.
