Pink Cloud Bus Shelter

The Pink Cloud Bus Shelter Japan
Ron Herron – The Pink Cloud Bus Station, Kyoto, Japan

Ron designed an elegant and simple tensile structure for this bus/train interchange station for an expo in Japan. Ron wanted something really cool and punchy for the tent colour and chose this vivid pink which caused quite a stir at the client meeting. Upon being asked why the pink, he replied that it symbolized the colours of a setting sun upon a cloud. His clients loved the idea and the colour was faithfully reproduced for the tensile structure which was then up lighted so it would glow at night.
