If there was any question as to where one might find taxi ranks, the presence of the Taxi! Station by DesignNobis would undoubtedly lure you in the right direction. The letters T, A, X and I are applied from sidewalk to ceiling so that there would be no missing your next move.
Dreamed up by A' Design Award winner Hakan Gursu, the concept on its own is a logical one. Why shouldn't there be a bus shelter type of structure for people waiting in a queue for a cab an night?
But more than just a glass pane and a tiny flat roof, the Taxi! Station by DesignNobis is quite substantial. The large lettering becomes part of the load-bearing structure for the street-front and a comfortable closed room inside provides increased cover.
