FALLINGWATER Edited by Lynda Waggoner
Gordon Square Bus Shelter,

Photograph: Eric Hanson - Hanson PhotoGraphic The brief called for the creation of functional and iconic elements to be incorporated as a part of an ensemble of new pieces of public art slated for the highly anticipated Detroit Avenue Streetscape project. The design is conceived as a single stainless steel surface which wraps and folds to create the shelter. Folds in the surface are determined by the accommodation of functional, contextual, and structural variables, which merge to generate the shelter’s shape. A pattern of perforations moves across the surface of the shelter which responds to localized conditions of sun, wind and view.
