Bus Shelter

Winners Announced:

The challenge winners are announced here!


The challenge is to design a modular bus shelter for an urban pedestrian street. The goal is to provide an architectural solution that is functional, feasible, repeatable, and elegant. The bus shelter must protect people from the elements (rain, sun), while providing ample security, circulation and seating. The designer is free to choose a location, but the documentation should clearly explain the chosen location and how the design responds to its immediate context. The bus shelter must include a signage element for orientation and advertisement.

The purpose of these challenges is to build a resource that is community driven, that the community can pull from, and that the community can expand upon. Special attention will be given to those submissions that creatively use the tools in their design.



  • Abstracted urban pedestrian streets.
  • Location: To be determined by designer. Please specify location.



  1. Protect pedestrians from the elements (rain, sun).
  2. Artificial lighting should be integrated into design
  3. Develop a design strategy that can adapt to various site conditions.
  4. Design should functional, feasible and elegant.
  5. Design should provide an area for signage.
  6. Have fun!
