Austin Bergstrom Airport
RS&H provided three concepts to the City of Austin, Department of Aviation for a new Austin-Inspired bus shelter. The concept inspirations were driven by the Austin culture of “Keep Austin Weird,” the “Live Music Capital,” and Congress Bridge bats. Ultimately, the “Guitar” concept was chosen by the Department of Aviation for the new bus shelter. The “Guitar” concept represents the iconic symbol of Austin being the “Live Music Capital.” The shelter includes custom steel fabrication in the shape of a guitar with translucent panels and LED lights along the backbone of the guitar. The LED lighting is coordinated with the Capital Metro bus and displays different colors of lights depending on how far out the bus is (e.g. green for 10 minutes out, yellow for 5 minutes out, and red for arriving).
