A Bunt Bit: Reinventing Bus Stops

Bus shelters tend to fade into the background of the urban environment, becoming little more than utilitarian places that sometimes allow you to get out of the rain or take a seat. But what if the bus stop could be a piece of art? A landmark that drew people in?

A small village in Austria recently unveiled seven new bus shelters designed by architects from around the world. These avant-garde structures certainly aren’t conventional, but perhaps their ability to catch you off guard will make the experience of taking the bus more like making a visit to an art gallery.
