Full text on page 2: The concept for the bus stop on the Utah State’s campus is to create a lively environment that fosters collaboration and interaction between student, faculty, and public life. The mission of the university fits well with this concept. Utah State has created a master planning process composed of seven principles to consider. 1. A lively campus; a magnet for student, faculty, staff and public life 2. State of the art facilities to support the university’s mission for teaching, research and public life 3. A setting to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and interaction 4. Campus as a destination for the public 5. Functional and sustainable transportation 6. Capitalize on the natural landscape setting, and 7. Leadership in environmental stewardship A campus bus stop was developed with these principles in mind. In order to achieve an interdisciplinary collaboration and interaction, the idea arose to use LCD screens to present information to the public regarding campus activities. Sustainable efforts were used in several ways to follow with the mission of the university. Photovoltaic panels are installed to power the LCD screen and other energy the building may need for its water fixtures. Water collection is a large part of the sustainable design of the bus stop. Pervious paving materials were used to permit water to enter a cistern by virtue of the porous nature or large spaces in the material. The structure was slanted in areas to allow the water to flow into a cistern underneath an above ground water fixture. From this cistern, water is then pumped when necessary to irrigate the surrounding landscape. To create a pleasant environment, the building is oriented so that the sun is both exposed and concealed from the interior of the structure. This orientation enables the building to have warm areas in the cold winter months and cools areas in the hot summer months. Landscaping is used to create a fun destination for the public and a welcoming entrance to the structure. Together, all of these principles set up an ideal lively campus environment.

Who's paying for this? I hope there's a loose-pocketed alum available.
