A simple desing, neoplastic, agree with the building, I say, a perfect composition.

It complements the building, blending perfectly with its non-invasive design, avoiding any visual pollution. Love it! Elena

A composition with a clear dialogue with the building, and not visual interference. ' Less is more...' Marcela

What is important about this project is its conceptual approach – not designing a bus stop as a singular, stand alone object, but with an eye toward creating a neighborhood, a coherent place, and a destination. This intention is evident in all great urban places, and we should applaud all designers who take up this charge. Other laudable qualities: reinforcing the meaning of a place - creating meaning in architecture, and doing so with elegant simplicity. Nice work!

A thoughtful example of how a bus stop can serve as the continuation of a building's form and artistic language.

I like it very much, specially for the simplicity and not visual interference.

Love the idea of integrating the school brand and colors with the simple yet elegant and functional design

Excellent work. Simple, functional and attractive. An "option" might be to add a solar collecting roof and battery storage for LED lighting at night.

Columbus Family Academy Bus Stop

Submitted by FPastor on September 18, 2009

Columbus Family Academy Bus Stop in New Haven, CT

By the simple resource of modifying the standard bus stop used throughout the city of New Haven we incorporated colors and artwork related to the adjacent school, heralding its presence and creating a safe place where the students can still be curious and challenged while waiting for their transportation.

The bus stop is the first-ever city shelter emblazoned with the name of a nearby educational institution although worldwide, museums, schools or hospitals had been linked before with train, subway stations and shelters used by their public.

Terrazzo discs and aluminum stars, discarded samples of the school lobby flooring, are embedded in the concrete floor to suggest the starry sky that must had enveloped Christopher Columbus small fleet on their historic voyage of discovery.

Three Kynar custom colors and a sandblasted Lexan panel representing wind swirls and the waves of the Atlantic face the street and remind the users of the value of public art.
