Bus stops are rather mundane, and turning them into public art projects is something cities have done for years to make them more appealing. Mostly, they just become advertisement centers for upcoming summer blockbusters. In Krumbach, Austia, a selection of renowned international architects turned 7 bus stops into mini-design projects. Some bizarre, some functional, some just a nice place to sit and look at a field.
