The Lang Bus Shelter Takes a Transparent Two-Faced Form

There's little doubt that covered bus stops can be exceedingly useful with even the most basic built components, but the Lang Bus Shelter manages to succeed more than most with the incorporation of just a few minor adjustments.

Sure, this street-side sanctuary embodies a streamlined contemporary look, in which the overall shape expresses a mod asymmetry that is almost entirely aesthetic. Its monolithic acrylic structure has a poetic appearance, created in the way that the canopy becomes the curvaceous bench at its base.

But aside from the chic shape of this Maite Otano invention, it's the double-sided space it creates that's incredibly useful. A glossy pane of glass down the center produces twice the seating and provides at least one section of cover depending on the direction of rain. The addition of the digital display screen on the Lang Bus Shelter is a welcome bonus as well.
