Specially created for the city of Lexington, Kentucky, the Bus Shelter System and City Furniture Concept by designer Mike McKay is a new modular design that makes waiting for buses more pleasurable for passengers. The futuristic design is composed of modular components which can be assembled on or off site. The design is comprised mainly of digitally cut sheet steel and glass panels that give the design a distinct futuristic look without appearing too farfetched in its form.
Under the media tower and the main media/art cabinet, stands the foundation footer that is situated along two points in the design and the structure is bolted to the pre-laid foundation to make it more secure and stable. The Bus Shelter System and City Furniture Concept are also intended as a space for promoting and highlighting work of art by local/international artists and add to the culture of the city.
The design is primarily at providing the passengers with an entertaining yet secure shelter that can feature a number of media/entertainment options without incurring a huge carbon footprint. The sustainable design is intended to last for decades without requiring any hardcore maintenance or overhaul and used transparent solar panels laid along the roof of the structure to help provide green power to the media units of the shelter.
