Musical Swings in Montreal
A team of Montreal designers whose goal is to bring magic to everyday events has placed an interactive installation of musical swings alongside a Montréal city street next to a bus stop.
A fresh look at the idea of cooperation, the swings play a tune when pedestrians move in unison rather than independently. The result is a giant instrument made of 21 musical swings; each swing in motion triggers different notes, all the swings together compose a piece, the sounds of which emerge only from cooperation. You can watch video here how it works.

The sculpture is made from wood and steel, conceived like oversize pieces of urban furniture. Each letter allows passengers to assume different sitting or standing postures while waiting for the bus. Each letter is big enough to accommodate two to four people. The B can protect them from the elements, and the curve of the S invites passengers to lie back while they wait.

Bus Shelters, Netherlands
The Amazing Whale Jaw
Hoofddorp Bus Station was designed by NIO Architecten in The Netherlands. This bus station was built on the forecourt of Hoofddorp’s Spaarne Hospital in 2003. The design of this kind of building is generally neutral, but here the aim was to create a strong, individual image that was less austere and generic.
Amazing Whale Jaw is completely made of polystyrene foam and polyester and is, as such, the world’s largest structure in synthetic materials (50m x 10m x 5m). The available budget meant that it could never have been created using conventional construction methods.

In Ventura, a bus transfer station at Telegraph Road near the Pacific View Mall is also an award-winning art piece. At a cost of $2.2 million dollars, the bus transfer station called "Bus Home" stands 36 feet tall at its highest point and is a twisty spiral of steel, concrete, and acrylic. Its grand opening was June 12, 2002, and it was built by the artist, Dennis Oppenheim. According to Oppenheim the "work depicts the metamorphosis of a bus becoming a house." and it is meant to signify that "the passengers will arrive at their destination. They will arrive home."
The art piece shows a bus slowly transforming into a house, looping through the changes. Sadly there are several criticisms of the art piece, despite the awards it has one. Besides the not surprising eye sore complaint, many travelers have complained that the art piece doesn't provide adequate shelter in inclimate weather.
