    Suggestions:
    Consider moving the part on the analysis of Sunny Bay Station structure to the front or the body of your essay, rather than to leave it at the end. The examples, technologies you are going to bring forward in the essay should somehow serve as references in explaining how the Sunny Bay structure works, and as supplements to your comments you are going to make.
