Bus Shelters

Since leaving China, where the concept of bus shelters does not seem to exist, we have been entertained by a variety of bus shelters dating from the Soviet era. We have even used one to shelter from the rain. Here I show a variety, to give you a flavour of these architectural wonders that display artistic expression not seen in many other Soviet construction projects.


The standard model – this one is in an average state of repair
Wow what a design, what was the architect smoking?
Was the architect trying to be culturally uplifting?
Was this use in the engineering specification?
A practical design for a windy area – and local nomads can feel at home
