Aston Martin and Foster + Partners won the first prize in the Transport for London competition. The two top brand names in design came up with a new version of the classic and iconic London double-decker bus. It will be environmentally friendly, easily accessible and appeal to tourists. Foster + Partners and Aston Martin surveyed passengers, drivers and conductors to get the best advice from real users.
Implications - The new double-decker bus was designed to be able to move with ease through the streets of London, while conserving energy at the same time. The bus will have lots of windows so that tourists can enjoy the sights. Foster + Partners and Aston Martin also made safety a main priority when designing the bus.
