Solar-Powered Bus Shelter

Designed by UK College of Design student Aaron Scales, the shelter uses recycled glass Ale-8-One soft drink bottles illuminated by LED lights. Project Bottleshop has not only created a bus stop, but at the same time they have created a unique piece of street art! The whole thing is enclosed in safety glass and is completely self-sustaining, with solar panels providing energy for the shelter’s lighting.
