Part architecture and part sculpture, BUS:STOP takes the humble transit hub to new heights–literally. Sou Fujimoto’s bus stop, for instance, looks like an elevated roofless treehouse nestled within a white birch forest. While the other designs offer more protection from the elements, they are also artistic and unconventional.

In total, architects from seven countries and three continents were represented in the final designs. BUS:STOP was largely funded by private donors and the finished bus stops opened this month.
