fast forward the beautiful bus stop

This, is a bus stop.  I’m not pulling your leg while you stand there forever waiting. It lives in an Austrian village where the bus stop has become the new canvas for environmentally-oriented public installation art.  Designer Sou Fujimoto said,

“Our intention is to design a bus stop where people can meet, enjoy the views, and that, furthermore, functions as a landmark in Krumbach… Both bus passengers and non-bus users can use this bus stop as a meeting point. Everyone may climb the tower-like bus stop to enjoy panoramic views of Krumbach. A transparent forest of columns can create interesting scenery in a site surrounded by nature.”
