Cities are filled with people who are concerned about making the space they live in more interesting, and it looks like Hamburg is no different. Its Landmark design series represents a line of city fixtures that are pleasing to the eye as well as functional, using similar design styles to tie them all together. This bus-stop canopy, designed by Hadi Teherani, is a good example.
Entirely functional as a bus stop, it also features color-changing lights that are meant to provide a soothing atmosphere where harsh, white light can be too much. It has space for two-sided posters at one end, and the rest of the walls are see-through. Visibility is an important comfort to those of us who find ourselves at bus stops often and don't want to get hassled after a long day at work. Still, when I think of bus stops, the first thing I want redesigned is the seat, and I don't know if green or blue mood lights are going to make me happy about a hard-as-rock bench.
