Question: Is the location of the Leestown Rd. bus stop on the base map the exact proposed site? Does it have to be oriented at the same angle as on the base map? Also, is the rectangle to scale on the provided?
Answer: The location indicated on the map is approximate. However, it will be generally in that area shown. The bus door should open as near the shelter as possible. You can see the painted lines on the road where the bus stops. Another consideration is that a sidewalk connection will be made to the existing sidewalk parallel to Town Center Dr. The sidewalk portion of the project will be built as a separate project in tandem with this. So, the price for the sidewalk does not have to be considered as a part of this design contest. The orientation shown on the map was suggested but not required. Protection from weather elements, access and visibility should be key considerations in placement. Obviously the overall composition and how it integrates with the surroundings are a big consideration as well. There needs to be some flexibility of placement depending on where some utility lines may be located underground. The rectangle is not to scale. It’s just there to show approximately where the shelter needs to be.The dimensions of the structure are to fall within 28 x 17 feet and must not exceed that.
Question: Can an artist alone submit a design for the prize? Answer: No, an artist would have to partner with an architect, or be an architect, to enter
because detailed construction specs of the design are required.
