According to Lundberg Design, «San Francisco is a unique place, full of sights and experiences that singularly belong to its identity. Importantly, several of those signature elements are symbols of transportation – the Golden Gate and Bay Bridges, the Ferry Building, and of course the Cable Car. These icons define the unique physical character that is so much of San Francisco's magic.»
So, when in 2007 SFMTA decided to update the MUNI stops, architect Olle Lundberg «viewed the design of the next generation of bus shelters as an opportunity to create an object that celebrates function, is visually arresting, and specific to San Francisco.» Today, with over 1,400 wavy, solar paneled roofs popping up to replace the old stops, the shelter design has certainly joined the ranks of iconic modes of SF transport.
