Design a bus stop in the glass! Nordic Centre of Glass, NCFG invite you to design a bus stop in glass.

Challenge

The challenge of Transparent Shelter is to design a glass bus stop. The bus stop should show how the medium of glass can be used to create solutions that are both aesthetic and functional. Solutions should be innovative, and the construction should consist almost entirely of glass.The competition is an opportunity to do some substantial research on glass as a medium, and to become familiar with the wonderful range of glass and glass techniques, which are used today in building and handicraft.

Brief

The construction must afford shelter from wind and rain, and maybe even offer a warm environment for people waiting, a place where waiting can be a meaningful and pleasant experience. At night the construction should be a cosy haven. The proposal should also take into account, and suggest how the construction could be self-sufficient in terms of energy; provide entertainment and advertising; and be resistant to vandalism.

Eligibility

Anyone is welcome to enter the Transparent Shelter competition and to suggest excellent ideas for a new glass bus stop. In order to enter the competition you must register as a user on Innosite.
