Recycled Bus Stop


This beautiful work of public art, as well as utility, titled Bottlestop Bus Shelter Project, is in Lexington, Kentucky.


Made by artist Aaron Scales, the bus stop was part of a national design competition. Inspired by discarded trash at the site, Scales went local with his work, constructing the bus stop out of all local Kentucky soft drink Ale-8-One bottles. The bus stop also uses LED lighting to illuminate the glass bottles at night; solar energy is collected during the day and used for the eye-popping nighttime light display. Beautiful and functional!
