Sheltered: The Bus Stops Here

Shoot the Stylist! was commissioned to design a new concept for a bus stop to be exhibited at Sheltered: The Bus Stops Here. Happening in the Gallery@Oxo in Oxo Tower this week, the exhibition was curated by the MA Curating Contemporary Design. The Private View will be on Friday 31st October from 6.00 – 8.30pm and you are cordially invited, although I unfortunately won’t be able to be there myself since I am currently in Japan.

Gallery@Oxo, Oxo Tower, Bargehouse Street, London SE1 8QG

“Sheltered: The Bus Stops Here celebrates the bus shelter as a vital part of our existing urban landscape and as a vehicle for the future vision of today’s design-led cities. The bus stop is an everyday marker, meeting point and point of departure. Love them or hate them, we’ve all spent some time waiting at one. But while its function may be universally understood, the design and appearance of this icon varies greatly. From city to city across the world – even between neighbourhoods within a single city – the bus stop defies its universal status and takes on a wealth of local meaning. Sheltered is a celebration of innovation in existing and future bus stop design and will show different views on the bus stop from the past till now – featuring new commissions by 5 architectural practices and a product designer – this exhibition will challenge to examine the future of the bus stop for London.”
