the project update

now that the new semester has begun, the bus | shelter remains in our lobby, providing seating for those in the space. it's interesting to note that those sitting in the lobby far prefer the shelter over the excruciatingly uncomfortable concrete and metal benches usually encountered there. a small group of students met with the greensboro transit authority board in january in an effort to maximize the impact of their work. the shelter will be used as an exhibit for the regional design, arts + technology symposium in high point at the beginning of march. we hope that the project lives on in future years as a reminder to the community about the power of change in the face of adversity. in this way, the bus | shelter serves as a symbol linking past to present in our community. thanks for following this project.
