Designing a Bus Shelter in Twinmotion

Sometimes the biggest impact happens when we rethink the things people use everyday. In this lesson, we’ll redesign a 3D bus shelter to make it more inviting for the daily commuters.


You’ve been hired to improve the quality of life for people who commute to work every morning. The typical bus stop has not changed much in years. Most bus stops / shelters consist of a simple covering and a bench. Why not create a more inviting environment for people who spend every morning waiting for the bus. How people start their day has a great impact on the rest of their day. Let’s make this morning ritual more pleasant for commuters!

Students will design a bus shelter using a 3D CAD software of choice, and Twinmotion. In the process, students will:
  • Learn about architectural sketching to develop original designs.
  • Incorporate 2D and 3D CAD modeling to formalize final designs.
  • Transform CAD models into a walkthrough animation using Twinmotion.
  • Demonstrate an understanding of drafting and drawing principles.
  • Develop and test hypotheses while engaging in the iterative design process.

Students will be able to:

  • Identify and apply the steps of the design process.
  • Gather and apply information pertinent to design planning.
  • Plan and organize the project.
  • Create concept and scaled sketches of bus shelter ideas.
  • Use appropriate design tools to create CAD drawings.
  • Produce a flythrough with Twinmotion.
  • Report and reflect on their experience with the design process using a suitable oral and/or written format.
