Baltimore's Big Bold Beautiful Bus Stop Sculpture...
but you won't miss the bus stop.
Designed by the Madrid design collective Mmmm the big bold and beautiful, the imaginative typographical sculpture with its fourteen foot high and seven foot wide letters is situated on South East Avenue in the Highlandtown neighbourhood of Baltimore.
It's a place to enjoy, interact and meet while waiting for the bus. Made from wood and steel the letters are big enough to accommodate two to four people each while assuming different postures of sitting, standing or lounging.
Funny isn't it how riding on a bus
can change the world.
Life can be seen as similar to a bus journey.
We can meet strangers yet to be friends and
if Rosa Parks hadn't refused to move to the back of the bus the world may never have heard of Doctor Martin Luther King...
