Rosa Parks Transit Center

The Detroit Transit Center has gained an inverted funnel canopy, installed to help protect the bus stop from weather. It is actually also a tribute to Rosa Parks, since her activism helped prompt equality in the bus system. This was designed really well, the form moves with the wind, using a tension system [1].
