This bus shelter, which consists entirely of glass, is the prototype for a planned production run. Like side and back panels, the roof and load-bearing elements are also made of glass. All connections and joints are effected as point fixings by a system of standardised fixing elements. Bench seat and spotlight are integrated into the overall concept.
