Recently displayed by artist collective mmmm…, this playful and practical installation in Baltimore, USA adds a fun dimension to the mundane act of waiting for the bus. Consisting of three typographic sculptures that literally spell out the word “BUS”, the innovative project  project was developed in conjunction with SPAIN arts & culture, Creative Alliance, and is part of TRANSIT, a creative place-making initiative between Europe and Baltimore. The new structure serves an aesthetic purpose as well as a functional one; as you can see in the photos below, the “S” allows people to lie back while they wait, and the “B” provides shelter.

The installation is a result of a collaboration between Emilio Alarcón, Alberto Alarcón, Ciro Márquez, and Eva Salmerón, who have been designing public spaces in Madrid since 1998. According to their description, BUS is made with wood and steel, materials that are typically used to build urban furniture. The three letters of BUS are big enough to accommodate two to four people each and protect them from rain, sun, wind, and bad weather. They allow people to assume different postures of sitting or standing while waiting for the bus. How do you find this unconventional alternative to a bus station?

Sunken living rooms were all the rage in the 60s and 70s, but they can still be just as comfy and stylish in the aughts. With so many of us opting for open plan spaces these days, creating a casual but defined “conversation pit” is a fun way to break up your living room into manageable zones. Read on for some of our favorite inspiration rooms featuring cozy sunken living areas that we’d love to nestle up in. The soaring ceilings of this bright and airy Texas home are further exaggerated by its recessed seating area. The raw look of the wooden ceilings and concrete floors are softened by strategically placed pops of color and plush pillows.
