Blends in with the natural environment. Not obstrusive to the landscape.

I like the interior space and the fact that you have shelter against prevailing winds. you might want to consider a slope on the roof to account for heavy snowfall. good job!

I really like the elongated design, plenty of roon for all riders. Seems very user friendly.

Well thought out both visually and with the right materials so to extend its useful life beyond 50 years.. Best one I have seen.

It is clear that a great deal of thought has gone into this design. This concept utilizes the most modern materials to provide the maximum benefit to the community within a highly efficient footprint.

this looks like many bus lines would need to come through it for it to be realistic. also kinda looks like a ranger station. and the rock material pasted onto small structural elements is a bit odd.

The Intent of the design was to mimic the surrounding mountains while creating a sustainable bus stop with an emphasis on comfort and safety to the commuter. The bus stop is elongated to provide the patron an option of being out in the elements or in shelter. The stop is oriented to protect the patron against the winter’s prevailing wind. The walls are galvenized steel cages with rocks in between, gabion retaining walls, which compliment the surrounding mountains. The roof is a high tensile fabric with a wire skeleton that mimics the mountains snow capped peaks. Thin photovoltaic

panels provide energy for the street lights, which gives safety to commuters who ride at night. The south side of the stop has a covered bicycle rack for commuters. The bus stop will enhance the view of public transportation at The University of Utah.
