A healthy public transportation system is critical to the development of a sustainable university campus. The UB 2020 Master Plan seeks to reduce reliance on private automobiles for transportation to the campuses, between campuses and within each campus. Bus shelter design is a critical factor in promoting the use of public transportation. The prototypes developed within the studio investigate the design of shelters and terminals while exploring the significance of such a construction in contemporary life and architecture. The results of the studio will be used to inform the prototypes developed for the UB 2020 Master Plan and construction in the coming years.
