Third Street Bus Shelter

The bus shelter design celebrates the constant movement along the Third Street corridor. Through a dynamic canopy, the shelter captures the essence of this movement and provides a pleasing visual experience for pedestrians and commuters. The primary structure is comprised of four steel frames, supporting two curved beams overhead. Equally spaced along the beams are the steel ribs that define the canopy, with interwoven wood planks, creating a light and airy structure. Laminated glass keeps out the elements and welcomes in light and shadow.

Michael designed this shelter for a Bloomington Community Art Commission competition in 2000. The proposal was awarded an honorable mention.
