The mobile police station, created by Gesamtkonzept architects, is a fantastic design in Hanover, Germany. The police station draws on a prevalent theme in post-Nazi German architecture of openness and transparency.
The mobile police station has floor-to-ceiling windows and laminated panels. Germany has a reputation as being on the cutting-edge of design and this idea is truly ingenious. What I particularly like about this design is that it was built quickly, at a relatively low cost but is still very aesthetically compelling. This might very well be the future of police stations.
Implications - Cities are increasingly being designed to accomodate the shifting landscape of its demographics. This reflects an overall shift from rural to urban living that is occurring. Companies should consider this urban reality when creating products.
