Printed glass windbreak

The Center of the Universe- inspired by Polish Astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus’ astronomical model in which the Earth and planets revolve around the Sun at the center of the solar system. The glass panels of the large bus terminal windbreak depict the Sun with colorful space rays that surround riders to create a comfort zone as they wait for transport on the next part of their journey. The second windbreak, when viewed in the distance from the Sun, is a cosmic connection within the transit station space.
