YVR Airport – Canada Line Terminus Station
These bus stations are making a colourful splash in California. In Santa Clara County, 21 new stations on the rapid bus line have beautiful colours that reflect the diversity of the neighbourhoods they traverse, while also creating a coherent identity along the 7.2 mile line.
The Santa Clara Transit Authority not only created faster travel times to downtown San Jose, but the visual journey is stunning.
The stunning colourful glass is courtesy of the talented artist collective – merge conceptual design. They created unique glass artwork as a backdrop to each station (on the station’s windscreen). The patterns at each station came from the stories and elements of the surrounding neighbourhood.
IBI Group – the design team – approached Stella for advice to support the glass windscreens. They wanted an edge support for the glass but didn’t see any on the market that met their very specific performance requirements on this transit line.
After collaborating with the designers and proposing various options, Stella created the Uni-Clipz system for this project. While this system has proven to be popular in projects following Santa Clara, it was originally conceived and custom-made to meet this project’s specific needs.
