An art gallery for everyone

This combination of an art gallery with public utilities such as bus shelters would undoubtedly widens our boundaries about the use of a space.

Arranged by FAT in 1993, they constructed an exhibition of artworks that occupy 200 bus shelters in London.

I personally believe that this juxtaposition would set a different ambiance of how bus shelters should look like. Yet the idea of how people could appreciate the artworks in a short period and busy street circumstances is a very valuable lesson for further study about engaging public realm and art.
