Navrangpura Bus Stand

The façade of the Navrangpura Bus Stop functions as a huge billboard. The whole building has been totally covered over time by hand-painted advertisements. Under the layers of paint is a building designed by the architect Charles Correa. Nowadays the bus terminal is not only used to wait for buses. The upper floor houses a private engineering company. During the day, the south side of the ground floor is full of waiting passengers. The north side is an informal motorcycle taxi stand. Next to it, a group of homeless people have erected an informal shelter. They have extended their living space by incorporating the benches and fences, which is tolerated by the travelers.This project is part of the Architecture Reading Aid Ahmedabad (Ruby Press, 2015). © ARA (Fanelsa, Franke, Helten, Martenson, Wertgen)
