Bohl Bus and Tram Stop

St. Gallen


The shelter for this centrally located bus and tram stop at Bohl was originally commissioned in 1989 by the City of St. Gallen Building Surveyor's Office. The first submission was for a straight-forward roof structure centered on a longitudinal tube, which cantilevered off two inclined concrete supports to carry the ribs of the glass plates. In the same year, the project was reworked by Calatrava and he introduces a glass screen system installed around the curved-cast seats in front of each support. These glass screens will be folded away during the year's warmer months and in winter, it will be repositioned around the benches to provide protection from adverse weather.
