Very fitting for Salt Lake area weather, where shelter is needed from the wind and very cold weather! I like the modern, updated, practical design

Nice incorporation of photovoltaic system for energy use. The interactive screen and wi-fi are also great additions to the design.

The concept for the “Next Stop Design” was derived from an Olympic downhill speed skier. The shell of the Next Stop mimics the form of a skier in a crouching position and the front reveal gives the impression that it’s in motion. The shell is made from a composite material such as carbon fiber or fiber glass so a mold can be made and it can be massed produced. The bench takes its cues from the skies of the downhill skier. One end of the bench is formed out of the concrete walk and is the anchor point for the wood seats that extend out mimicking the skies tucked under the skier. The Next Stop is enclosed by pre-formed glass panels to provide protection from wind and cold weather.
Incorporated into the shell is a Photovoltaic System that provides the energy needed for the Next Stop. An interactive screen at the front of the shell provides information on schedules and routes for both busses and light rail. Also at the front is a ticket machine. When the interactive screen is not being accessed the screen can be programmed for advertisement use. Wi-Fi is also available.
