Bus Stop

All over the Valley of the Sun (the Phoenix metropolitan area) there are artistic bus shelters in certain locations.

When I was in Mesa last weekend, I found this bus stop shelter right in front of the high-rise building I featured yesterday.  This has to be one of the most elaborate bus shelter I've spotted around the valley.

I found out it was designed by Joe Tyler and placed there in 2002.  The design consists of a dome supported by artificial palm trees.  Perhaps the artist was inspired by all the palm trees that surround the building.

That's great! I love it when sculptural forms can be integrated into a structure with practical purpose.

Waiting for a bus
is a pain in the rear
but a cozy little shelter
makes the pain less severe.

It sure is a lot nicer than those that we have.

Compared to shelters here this one is pretty darn classy. I can hardly wait to see the buses.

Probably the most stylish bus stop I have ever seen.
