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!

I love this! Outrageous employment of recycled good and even solar power for LED lights. Great.
