This design suits very well for warmer countries, but cannot work for countries like Sweden. 3 stars from me.

It is appealing. I wonder if the designer knows how agressive bambo becomes once it takes root. We wouldn't have very long to see how green this one would become. It is plesant to look at.

A little out of context at the U. The low things look like tripping hazards.

Inspired by the spirit of the campus and city, Organic Campus provides an innovative solution for a bus stop that emphasizes environmental, social, and economical sustainability, as well as user experience and comfort.
The naturally flowing forms blur the lines between the walls and ceiling, the interior and exterior, the new and the pre-existing, poetically combining every aspect of the design together as one. This dynamic form represents a tree, a tree of growth and hope for the campus and city.
The tried and true green roof scheme provides space for plant life, as well as shade and cooling in the hot summers. Treated wood from local manufacturers is used in the interior to provide a sense of warmth and comfort for the user. There will be three trees planted for every tree used, to emphasize environmental sustainability.
Accessories include a scrolling LED display that notifies the user on when the next bus arrives, wireless hotspot, and additional seating for peak times. Fluorescent light is placed on top of the display for visibility and safety at night. Accessibility is emphasized, including easy wheelchair access, remote infrared audible signage for the visually impaired, and multiple escape routes. Bike racks and vending can be added onto the design.
A symbol of sustainability, growth, and diversity, Organic Campus is a physical manifestation of the forward thinking spirit of the University of Utah and the Salt Lake City.
