PAUL CREMOUX Studio try to better long distance travel with bright floral structure 

As PAUL CREMOUX Studio’s attempt to reinvent the highway experience, this project adapts existing conditions to regain diverse design solutions and aesthetic intentions.

Scarcity of minimum hygienic lavatories and proper services along the Mexico City-Acapulco main highway has provoked the architect to redefine what it is to travel long distances along a Mexican highway.

PAUL CREMOUX Studio believes that the experience of road travelling is governed by the changing landscape and stop refreshment moments: ‘Stop Points’ is mainly experienced as a waste of time and in some cases, disagreeable encounters with deficient and dirty lavatories and convenience stores. The proposal examines the relationship between this ‘high speed zones’ and the instances of ‘stop motion’.

The project aims to trigger the values of context and self sufficient energy resources to encourage a very diverse experience, where every ‘stop point’ has a different fashion design enriching the whole travelling experience.
