  BUs STOP
  2014. Baltimore (USA)

  Bus









  BUS is an obvious bus stop. Three large sculptures that form the letters BUS. Each letter stands fourteen feet tall and seven feet wide. BUS is a place to enjoy, interact, and meet while waiting for the bus. It is a leisure space in the middle of the rhythm of the city, a fun place for the inevitable waiting at a bus stop.

BUS is made with wood and steel, materials that are typically used to build urban furniture. The three letters of BUS are big enough to accommodate two to four people each and protect them from rain, sun, wind, and inclement weather. They allow people to assume different postures of sitting or standing while waiting for the bus. The S allows people to lie back while they wait, and the B provides shelter.

The size, shape, and function of BUS, can make this unique bus stop an iconic urban meeting point. A bus stop you will never miss.



A permanent public art project supported by Creative Alliance and Southeast Community Development Corporation in conjunction with the Baltimore Office of Promotion and the Arts, the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), and SPAIN arts & culture. It is part of the initiative TRANSIT, Creative Placemaking with Europe in Baltimore.

Special thanks to Gina Caruso, Miriam de Miguel, Kyle Miller, Chris Molinaro, Xavier Ruz and Tim Scofield.
