wainting for the bus…

if you have to wait for a bus why not do it under a nice roof? the bus-stop project in austria invited seven renownded international architects to design bus stops for krumbach – a small town in bregenzer wald.

the seven architects included: japanese architect sou fujimoto; wang shu’s amateur architecture studio from china; norwegian studio rintala eggertsson architects; ensamble studio from spain; chilean architect smiljan radic, architecten de vylder vinck taillieu from belgium and russian architect alexander brodsky

the bus stops were inaugurated on 1st may accompanied by an exhibition documenting the design process in dornbirn. the project was overseen by dietmar steiner, the director of vienna architecture museum architekturzentrum wien. local private sponsors including hotel and inn owners, craft workers and business people provided the majority of the funding and services to support the process.

the architects were offered holidays in the beautiful bregenzer wald instead of a fee…

we like the idea and call for more great looking bus stops all over europe!
