Rural Transit Bus Shelter Prototypes Project 1 for the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians
This work was designed and built by students of Architecture in their 4th year of formal study. The shelter incorporates native weaving patterns created by the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians for whom the shelter prototype was created. The shelter serves the adjacent daycare facility as part of a small park when not in use as a bus shelter for shift workers at the local casino.
