Well. Let see. would you flunk me if I didn't like it? Ok! I have to admit it's got good structural intensions. The PV is good sustainable feature along with opaque glazing. I also like the minimalism. Have you ever been to Utah Adrain? Mormans are avid traditonalist. Inspight of the fact that a winter olympics was hosted by them. They send kids out to canvas suburbs in search of new members all the time. Just trying to give a cultural lesson. And I think it gets kind of cold in Salt Lake City in the winter. +2.5

I like this one. It is open and airy. The people are well seen for safety reasons. The use of LED's and Photovaltaic is good eneregy use. It also helps to keep people informed. I like it, I give it a 4. Pete k

Cool design - sleek, very clean and practical to construct. Disadvantage is that there is not much protection against wind, or blowing precipitation.

Very Clean and honest design. Maybe in Design Development a side and rear Plexiglass element(s) for protection against wind & rain could be added.

The form is nice, but it just wouldn't work well. First of all, other than an overhead canopy, it offers no protection from the elements. And second, the cantilever would require setting the "Pre-engineered" metal frame far below ground with an ample concrete ballasted foundation. Otherwise it would tip over; even more so with snow and wind loads in the mix. It could be done, but for a bus stop it seems the cost and the lack of protection would make this a poor choice.

Solar powered bus station

Submitted by studioa on August 27, 2009

Solar energy provides energy for LED-backlit LCD screens, to warm up the seats during cold season, as well as quick charging for USB-powered devices (iPOD, etc.)
A pre-engineered metal structure, covered with plexiglass/laminated glass.
The bus station will present educational materials on the LCD screens – i.e. health facts like benefits of Omega 3,6,9 fatty acids, newest discoveries, city news, green trends, etc.
