  1. This sucks. Designs are so anti homeless they’re not useful for regular people. Just give us a rectangle with a full rectangle to sit on inside of it. It’s called a bench.

  2. Awful. You should all be ashamed at yourselves. This is a project designed with hate in mind.

  3. Many people need to sit to wait for the bus. Everyone should have the option to sit if they so choose. Your insistence on keeping away the homeless is making a worse world for everyone. Shameful.

    • Hi,

      The photos from StreetsLA show the other designs that are at the demo.

      Thank you,

  4. This sucks and the designers should be ashamed. Veering so far into anti-homeless architecture that it’s of actual use to nobody. Just use regular benches for duck’s sake

  5. all of these designs are terrible and look uncomfortable, blatantly hostile architecture— clearly designed by people who have never and will never wait for or ride a bus

  6. A great feature would be a nice long bench where multiple people can sit down and a good cover to shelter those waiting on the bus from the sun, rain, ect.

  7. This is literally wasteful, and only one person can use it at a time. What if it rains? What if they are in a wheelchair? This exists just because you hate seeing homeless people sitting and waiting for the bus. Try fixing the issues in your community instead of shunning and neglecting some of the most vulnerable people in society you depraved lunatics.

  8. Just say you hate homeless people. It’s less of a spectacle and at least it doesn’t make you look stupid in addition to evil.
