This is different and compelling.

i think its a great idea. there are a lot of designs on here that serve the designer more than the project, but this has an element of amusement that every campus should have.

bright and cheerful without being too much. i think this design could be adapted to many college campuses.

very bad presentation.

Again another design that doesn't have a realistic understanding of the size of materials and the structures needed to hold things up. And it would be nice if at least some of the requirements of the competition were met!!!!

Dearest Dharma, If you think this design is unrealistic and does not follow the guidelines then you have obviously NOT read the requirements... As a college student, I would start taking the bus JUST to have the privilege of waiting at this stop.

It is very sweet to see family and friends vote on designs whom have no idea what so ever about Design or the competition. Then it is even more fun to read the comments... I love the curvey shapes and the red and white combination. It flows in and out making the person feel safe and secure. Well done. (Mom)

completely living in fantasy land with those glass wall and roof sections. they have absolutely no structure and will never stand. and horrible renderings. i think you spent too much time rendering a bus. epic fail on so many levels.

Spirited Stop

Submitted by jessicamoberg on September 21, 2009

This bus stop design for the University of Utah blends fun and function. Inspired by the Utes Logo, the overlapping feather design emerges from the stop’s bench seats to create a striated covering overhead. The use of the U of U colors, crimson and white, provides a punch of school spirit.

The stop is outfitted with plenty of seating both outdoors and underneath the roof structure, most of which is accented by planters and trees. One of the greatest benefits of this stop is that it provides a barrier between pedestrians and vehicular traffic, which decreases the chances of auto-pedestrian accidents.

The brick walkway is constructed of severe weather bricks to resist cracking in multiple types of weather conditions; including the heat and dryness of the summer sun, and the scraping, shoveling, or salting of ice and snow.

The glass wall/roof sections allow for maximum visibility and passive heating in the winter, and may be outfitted with solar collection devices to power lights and heaters. The non-enclosure of the roof structure allows for passive cooling and shaded areas in the summer time.

This design provides a unique and spirited environment for students, faculty and residents to relax and unwind while making their way across campus.
