EOP Bus Stop Design Featured in Business Lexington

A Business Lexington article recently featured a rendering of the EOP Bluegrass bus stop. This bus shelter was designed for a proposed location on Newtown Pike as a part of the Art In Motion Bus Stop Competition. The blue steel pipes, which frame the perimeter of the shelter, are a sculptural interpretation of Kentucky bluegrass and doubly serve as the structural support for the metal roof. The signage on the interior of the shelter is meant to be an art piece that can be changed on a regular basis.
